Professional Care and Support for the Elderly
Pine Lodge Care Home is situated in the Worle area of Weston-super-Mare. The Home can look after elderly residents including those who may be suffering from dementia. It enjoys an excellent reputation with the local community and benefits from recommendations and referrals from local health and social care professionals. Renowned for its informal and friendly atmosphere, Pine Lodge provides a safe and friendly environment for those suffering from dementia.
At Pine Lodge the emphasis is on creating a welcoming, safe and homely atmosphere. The aim is simple – to provide the highest standards of care, service and comfort in a friendly and informal environment. For some residents, Pine Lodge is their home. Every resident is an individual, and Pine Lodge’s staff tailor its services to suit the abilities and requirements of each.
Pine Lodge Care Home is registered for 22 residents with the Care Quality Commission , 21 singles and one registered for double occupancy. Each room is decorated and furnished to a high standard and most have en-suite facilities. The accommodation is situated over two floors with three separate sitting rooms and a variety of outdoor seating areas.
Pine Lodge’s Gardens
To the front of the property is a delightful rose garden that provides a seating area that is a definite favourite on warmer days. There is also a short and level walk around the garden as well as an opportunity to be involved with the many plants and hanging baskets that blossom, especially in the summer months. There are beautiful outlooks to the front and rear including the rose gardens and a nature area which attracts an abundance of wildlife.
All our meals are freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchens, by our dedicated cook and staff who pride themselves on producing a wide variety of wholesome, tasty food. Our menus are constantly developed and reviewed, introducing tempting new dishes alongside tried and tested favourites. Our main meal is provided at lunch time, with a choice of delicious main course and dessert. Residents can opt to enjoy their meals in the large, airy dining room overlooking the garden, one of the informal sitting areas or in their own room. Our caring staff are very happy to serve breakfast in bed, at a time that best suits each resident and our cook will always try to offer alternative main meals for anyone who isn’t tempted by the daily choices available. We aim to provide nutritious and appetising meals in comfortable and sociable surroundings, to ensure meal times are an enjoyable part of each day.
Care Home Staff
The Manager of Pine Lodge is Kate Squires, who is supported by an experienced deputy and dedicated team of care assistants and catering staff. A significant number of the care staff are qualified to NVQ level 2.
We offer a programme of activities designed to entertain and stimulate our residents, such as “mind and motion” workshops; creative art; film nights; puzzles and games; and gentle exercise to music classes. Participation is encouraged but it is up to each individual how many, or few, activities they wish to take part in. The programme is reviewed and refreshed, and we ask residents for their input in choosing activities that they find most enjoyable and rewarding. A sample of daily activities can be found here Pine Lodge Activities
