Life in Camber Lodge


We believe life in Camber Lodge should be a happy and positive experience. Residents are actively encouraged to make supported decisions in their daily living and home environment. They are given the opportunity to assist in decorating their own rooms, using their own furniture to ease the settling in period. They are made to feel responsible for activities of daily living, which include doing their own laundry, keeping their room tidy and inputting ideas for meal plans. On admission, a resident-centred care plan is crafted, through the collaboration of the resident, their family and the registered manager to ensure we listen to the individual’s needs and expectations, whilst giving them the appropriate support. These care plans are regularly revisited to ensure that they are adapted as required. There is also an open-house policy, where loved ones can visit at convenient times.

Our residents enjoy a wide range of activities. Local facilities include riding stables, local shops, pubs, libraries, gym, swimming pools and a local disabled discos. We have access to larger services such as Canterbury Oast Trust that runs a variety of courses for disabled students. This participation gives our residents the opportunity to make new friends in the local community. Holidays to Benidorm, shopping trips to France, trips to the zoo and theatre visits are amongst many of the trips that residents have enjoyed. For those who prefer to stay at home, hobbies are encouraged and developed: from growing organic vegetables to knitting modern nativity scenes!
We have regular visits from a chiropractor and an aromatherapist. Our local GP surgeries and Community Learning Disability Team also assist us with care.

Team


Our registered manager, Suzanne Richardson comes with over 20 years experience in care.  With the assistance of a dedicated team of healthcare professionals they deliver person-centred care to each resident, and work hard to create a relaxing, caring environment.  On-going training and development of our staff teams ensure that their skills are up to date and relevant to each individual’s care needs.  Our staff adopt a flexible approach to suit our residents needs.  We have recently introduced palliative care and our staff have shown to be very compassionate towards the individual and their family.  See testimonial page.  We are willing to consider care for individuals who are unfortunately diagnosed with terminal conditions and have care needs greater than can be provided in their own home.
