Meet The Manager

Donna Pepworth is Interim Home Manager at Acacia Lodge Care Home.

Situated adjacent to the A663 Broadway road and firmly established within the heart of the New Moston community, Acacia Lodge Care Home is five miles from Manchester city centre. Residents settle in quickly, with great support from families, who are very much a part of life at our retirement home. We have an open-door policy to friends and relatives, who can rest assured that their loved ones are in safe hands.

Respite Care Yes

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

We are confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space

Avery Healthcare has invested in outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’

The pods, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Our Building and Facilities

The Buttercup Café and enclosed rear garden are favourite spots for a bit of togetherness, though there are plenty of other spaces as well where residents can be as involved with others or as quiet as they would like to be. The choice is theirs.

We work closely with relatives in respect of residents who are living with dementia. Our Memory Care Suite uses their life stories as a basis for our care and we are proud to have a specialist Music Therapy programme which is hugely popular with residents and family.

Description

The staff and residents at Acacia Lodge are thrilled that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has assessed our residential care home as ‘Outstanding’, something that only 3.7% of care homes achieve in the UK. This reflects all the hard work that the whole care team put in, to ensure that the residents are superbly looked after and enjoy the best in care and healthy living. Earlier this year Manchester City Council also declared Acacia Lodge to be a Gold rated care home. Seems like the Acacia Lodge care team can do no wrong!

The Importance Of Meal Times

That’s not our word for it, it comes straight from a resident’s mouth. Dining is an integral part of life at Acacia House and our chef and his team take pride in cooking up delicious meals of  quality restaurant standard. Food is always nutritionally balanced, fresh, locally sourced where possible, and mindful of the seasons. There’s a choice on every menu and no special diet is ever a problem. We realise that palates can change and appetites wane as we get older, and sometimes people can be a bit fussy. But our chef always listens to what the residents say they like and will provide alternatives if someone fancies a special something.

There are no complaints about our cakes and pastries which are freshly baked every day and prove a very popular accompaniment to morning coffee or afternoon tea. We don’t extend to our own sommelier, but we do our best to make sure there is a good choice of wines for the evening meal. After all, dining is a social occasion. And if there’s a party going on, you’re more than welcome to join us.

Activities Are So Important

Our residential care home has earned a reputation across Manchester for its vibrancy, and our often energetic, musical approach to resident well-being, especially in the field of dementia therapy. This was recently picked up by The Guardian. Manchester Camerata Orchestra’s Music in Mind (MIM) projects, which included working at Acacia Lodge, was a great success and had some dramatic results in awakening communication and now has a follow-on programme in the home.

Local community organisations, faith groups and schools are regular visitors to Acacia Lodge and our Activity Coordinators make sure there is always something interesting going on. We have plenty of trips out in the wider Manchester and Oldham communities and often enjoy a lunch in a pub or café.

Family and friends can keep in touch with what is going on in the home through our Facebook pages, which are always kept up to date. We also make use of Skype to connect with loved ones who cannot visit so often. Technology is an important facilitator for us.
