Care Provider: Lilliput House Limited

Meet The Manager

Kerry Mason is Care Home Manager at Lilliput House.

A residential care home should be a community you can fall in love with – somewhere that cares for your physical, emotional, and intellectual well-being.

At Lilliput House, you can be the person you want to be: discussing the day’s news with friends, trying your hand at new activities, or relaxing in a quiet corner with a book and your own thoughts.

You come and go as you please because the doors are always open.

When you make the move from life on your own to life in a residential care home, you have a right to expect better care and greater happiness. Residential care for the elderly is not about marking time. It’s an opportunity to spread your wings – to make new friends and try new activities.

That’s how it is at Lilliput House. We hope you’ll think of this as a step forwards not backwards – a move to a better lifestyle all round.

Our Building and Facilities

You can take life at your own pace here. You need never feel overwhelmed because we tend to gather in small groups. With a split dining room and numerous sitting areas to choose from, you can easily find your own level within a group of like-minded friends. When you fancy a change of scene or mood, you can move on to see what other residents are up to.

Outside there are delightful gardens and a warm, cosy sun trap in summer. The doors are open so you can come and go as you please.

Once every 3 months we have a group meeting in which everyone airs their views on any aspect of life at Lilliput House. You don’t have to be shy about speaking up.

Description

Care at Lilliput House is superb. In its most recent inspector’s report, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) gave us ticks in all categories assessed.

We operate what the CQC calls a ‘care home without nursing’. That means we can look after any elderly resident who doesn’t suffer from dementia or need long-term nursing care. We are always fully staffed and a district nurse visits regularly.


The Importance Of Meal Times

To keep our menus varied and relevant, we regularly poll residents on what they like to eat. We cook our food on site each day in our own kitchens using fruit, veg, meat and bread brought in fresh. Our birthday cakes are made by our very chef. From time to time, as a special treat, we enjoy cake and biscuits cooked by our own residents.

Activities Are So Important

Life’s too short to waste a moment

At Lilliput House, we lead active, fun-filled lives. There’s something to do every day of the week. There are opportunities to laugh, sing, and dance together, to use our hands, to cook, to play instruments, to discuss our favourite books, and to keep ourselves independent.

Tell us what you like to do

The starting point for any new activity is what you tell us you want to do. We ask new residents about their interests and hobbies, and just in case we missed something, we would love to hear any suggestions – your family as well as you.

We’re so busy because we have a full-time (five days a week) activities co-ordinator. She sets up the week-long programme, then works with residents as a group or one-to-one to make sure no one gets bored. Other staff continue her work during the weekends.

Here’s what we’re doing already

We’re constantly developing our activities programme. This list gives you a taste of the sort of thing we do.

  • Arts and crafts: drawing, painting, card-making, felt, knitting, collage, etc – plenty of opportunity to get creative and messy
  • Exercise: chair exercises, different styles of dancing or walking round the garden
  • Games: from carpet bowls to Dominos; from card games to quizzes; from traditional games to board games
  • Trips / recreational outings: adventures from trips down memory lane to entirely new experiences
  • Cooking: everyone loves baking – it’s a special treat in which we all get to share the finished biscuits and cakes
  • Guest speakers / talks: there are plenty of people who come in to talk about their lives or to teach us new skills
  • Pet therapy: nothing beats some quiet time with animals
  • General household skills: this is all about keeping you independent – the more you do for yourself, the more in control you feel of your life
  • Live entertainers: everyone from bell-ringers to singers and keyboard players
  • Local schools visits: pupils come to sing or perform for us, including short plays
  • Personal care: hairdressing, makeup, manicure, pedicure etc
  • Gardening: the garden is a wonderful resource with raised beds for those who like to get their hands dirty
