Review of 2016
December 19, 2016
It has been a great year for the homes. As mentioned in previous blogs we have received positive inspection reports for Acorn and Cherry Lodge and we have also had an inspection at Beech Lodge in November. We are eagerly awaiting the report from this inspection, as the feedback we received on the day was really promising.
Other than inspections we have seen a lot of investment into the bricks and mortar of our services. Cherry Lodge in particular has seen a lot of work done to improve the environment and modernise facilities. This included a new walk in shower room, decking area, refurbished entrance and some landscaping in the gardens. Next year, plans have been made to do similar work at Acorn Lodge and to renew the heating system at Beech Lodge - in line with our commitment to improve all aspects of our services.
This year has also seen an improvement in the activities we are offering to our service users. The highlight has to be holidays to Butlins and Paris. But we are not just proud of the big trips we offer, it is also the smaller person centred activities which can really make an important difference in the lives of our service users.
Looking forward to 2017 we are really optimistic that we can build on a great 2016 and be able to report more news of good inspections, fun activities and important developments.
From all at the Care Lodges team, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!
