Jose Simoes

Beautifully positioned in the coastal village of Woolverstone, Suffolk, Spring Lodge is a stone’s throw away from the River Orwell and is very much a part of the village community. Our well-qualified, experienced and diverse staff group deliver complex, specialist residential and dementia care for up to 46 residents in this ‘Butterfly status’ previously award-winning home.

Kingsley Healthcare’s truly person centred approach to care creates a positive culture and focuses on the quality of life and relationships. We place importance on the past lives of our residents, and take the time to work closely with a resident and his or her family members to find out about personal tastes, history, hobbies and interests. This information is vital in understanding how best to support people to improve their sense of well-being and provide the best care possible while they live at Spring Lodge. The knowledge gained helps us so much to create bespoke care plans and lifestyles for each individual. We also listen carefully to the people who live with us and their families, about the services we provide. Family and friends are significant partners with Spring Lodge and are welcome to visit and chat throughout the day.

We are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for people living with a dementia and their families. We achieve this through our ‘Wings’ (Welcome, Individuality, Nurturing, Guidance, Sensitivity) philosophy of care. This award-winning approach is nationally recognized and our bespoke learning programme is designed to ensure that the person with a dementia is at the heart of everything we do. All of our homes are designed to be dementia friendly, and you will see this evidenced in every room.

Our Building and Facilities

Spring Lodge not only has spacious single and double rooms to accommodate a total of 46 residents, but also many communal areas in which to relax, socialise and play games. We have a conservatory, two lounges, dining room, garden and our pride and joy, the beach area. We aim to cater for everyone’s needs at Spring Lodge.

The entire home is very attractive throughout and is decorated and furnished to emanate a rather grand country retreat feel. Overlaying the decoration and furniture, each room has a different theme and contains varied items thoughtfully placed. The rooms are cosy, homely and extremely comfortable. As staff, we never forget that this is the home of the residents and that we are merely working in it. A part of the Kingsley culture is to encourage individuals to enjoy the home and individualise their rooms in any way they wish.

Spring Lodge has recently been extended with new bedrooms and a selection of communal spaces, and the main accommodation offers 18 single en suite rooms, 20 single non en suite rooms and 7 double non en suite rooms.

The team is selected through a very thorough recruitment process, which reassures us that the staff members supporting our residents are all sincere. New recruits undergo a very intensive induction training programme, where they are supported and helped to overcome any difficulties they might come across in their daily work. The team looks after our residents with emphasis on quality of life, and we strive to give real purpose to every single day our residents are living with us.

Our qualified, caring staff are friendly, enthusiastic and committed to enhancing the residents’ well-being. They connect with our residents through meaningful communication and encourage residents to interact with daily living activities and person appropriate activities. We want our residents to feel busy, useful, occupied and successful.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We encourage all our residents to live as healthily as possible, to help them have long and pleasant lives. Where possible we encourage exercise, keeping minds active and eating nutritious food. We support our residents in maintaining their independence as much as possible, so we embrace and encourage ways in which they can do this.

Our healthy, balanced meals are made from scratch in our kitchen using only the best ingredients. We also realise that eating habits vary, and our cook is able to provide a varied diet to meet everyone’s needs. The menu is regularly updated taking into account residents’ suggestions; this keeps mealtimes interesting.

Mealtimes are flexible and can be enjoyed with family members at any time. All food is cooked on the premises and is made both with health and taste in mind.

Hot drinks, tea, coffee and snacks are served throughout the day.

Activities Are So Important

An optional programme of activities follows breakfast, and individuals have a wide choice of how they spend their day. Spending time with family, visiting the award-winning pub or the marina close by; relaxing in one of the many spacious communal areas or their own room; watching TV; sitting in the garden, which is secure and always accessible; playing games; enjoying the various visiting entertainment or chatting with friends… the possibilities are almost endless!

The friendly, committed staff are always on hand to be with residents if needed, and an important part of the residents’ day is one-to-one time. In these periods they may do arts and crafts, explore the themed rooms, take a trip out, play a game, paint nails or just chat.

Sometimes group trips are taken to places of interest and/or for lunch, and we often have local entertainers or musicians dropping by for an hour or so. Some of our residents love helping out around the home, which helps everyone and is welcomed.

After supper, some residents opt to go to bed early, but others stay up until much later. Alcohol is available for those that want it, and there is NO set bedtime, as this is your home.
