Spring Lodge residents can rise at a time of their choice and select from a variety of cold and cooked breakfasts. Residents have their own diet plan, decided upon by them and their family. They can even take breakfast in bed if they like, but most prefer to enjoy the communal, friendly atmosphere of the dining room. Staff members dine with the residents and don’t wear uniforms, which adds to the wonderfully relaxed, homely feel of mealtimes.
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.
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.
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.
