Registered Manager – Claire McArdle
We offer permanent and respite
periods for either residential or dementia care. Whether you stay with us for a
week or a year we will cherish your individuality, respect your choices and seek
to make your stay a pleasant and joyful experience.
Our home was purpose built by a
family led business with over 30 years’ experience in providing residential
care to individuals. We exist at the heart of the Framwellgate community set
back from the busy high street.
Carers will be present 24 hours
a day, 7 days a week, to offer reassurance and assistance. Our in house laundry
and catering facilities will work to make your stay enjoyable and effortless.
We work closely with other health and
social care professionals to help meet your needs and preferences.
From maintenance man to head
housekeeper and care assistant to registered manager, our staff members are
carefully selected and then trained by professional trainers to put our
residents and their needs first. We are fortunate to have many individuals who
live locally and who like to share their experiences and abilities with our
residents, many of whom were also based locally most of their lives. Our
Manager Claire has worked within the home since it was opened, first as a care
assistant, then deputy and now as a fully qualified registered manager. Her
personal knowledge of the different roles within the home help nurture an open
and welcoming environment, the door is always open for feedback or if you want
to have a catch up.
To be well-led - the leadership, management
and governance of St Aidan Lodge will support provision of high-quality care
that's based around your individual needs, that it encourages learning and
innovation, and that it promotes an open and fair culture.
