Downshaw Lodge Care HomeAshton-Under-Lyne, Greater Manchester
We provide a high standard of care 24 hours a day. Our Residents have varying needs from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. Some stay with us on a permanent basis whilst others stay for short periods of time. We offer specialist Nursing care for those with Dementia and Respite care to give home carers a much needed break. We also have available a specialist 30-bed male only dementia unit.
We are very proud of our homely and welcoming atmosphere. We would be delighted to show you around so that you can experience it for yourself. There is so much more that we can tell you than we can include on these pages so please arrange to pop in for a chat.
Our Residents can pursue their hobbies in a number of communal and quiet lounges provided throughout the Home. These areas are used for relaxing, socialising and are great places to invite friends and families when they visit.
Lifestyle and Activities
Our activities programme is tailored to our Residents' preferences and we have a full and varied activities calendar with events planned throughout the year. We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly and there is always something going on from quizzes to musical events. We organise regular trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum and we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along. We support the UK National Dementia Strategy which ensures that key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for Residents with Dementia. We organise group and individual activities but in our experience it is the one-to-one sessions that our Residents find most calming and rewarding. Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each one of our dining areas has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day. We have highly nutritious and varied menus and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All of our food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Residents can choose to have their meals in their own room or in our dining room depending on how they feel. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea anytime.
