Welcome to Ladyville Lodge Care Home
You'll find Ladyville Lodge in North Ockendon, Essex.
Around the clock, and to meet residents' needs, we provide high quality specialist support, general assistance with everyday living, and respite care to give home carers a much needed break.
We also offer end-of-life care at a time residents and their families need dedicated help and support. We provide residential and nursing care. Some of our residents stay long term, others short term.
Ours is a purpose-built home in several acres of private land. Our mature gardens boast flower beds and a patio area where residents enjoy the stunning views. We also have a central courtyard where many enjoy their lunch in the open air.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening to music, or quietly reading. All these areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Ladyville Lodge Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator organises a full and varied calendar. We often have professional entertainers perform for residents, and we run trips to local places of interest including the library and Southend-on-Sea, and for lunch at local restaurants.
We arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of life at the care home. Each dining area 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 food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room, and we encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea.
Our father needed palliative care and we were given Ladyville Lodge as a care home - we came to see the home and found it homely and friendly which we were impressed by. Our father was given a lovely room where he was able to see the ducks and chickens which he loved. I can only say that his short time at Ladyville Lodge was made as comfortable as possible - the staff gave care, compassion and dignity in his last days which made us feel better that he was getting the care that he deserved. Not only were they aware of the care for the persons living at the home but also for the relatives/friends who come to see them. I wished we had known about Ladyville before. Highly recommend.
I cannot recommend this nursing home enough. With their friendly nature from the very 1st day my wife arrived.
Manager was so understanding and took so much pressure off of me too concentrate on my wife. All the staff from the sisters, nurses, cleaners, kitchen staff and even maintenance staff were so friendly, happy attitude it made it a little easier at this difficult time which in turn made it feel more like home.
Down to earth caring people, not only for my wife, but for me also.
To trust another person to care for a love one is a very difficult thing to do. These people took that worry away but still not easy. From small things like favorite meals to hourly care, nothing was an issue or problem.
If I thought too me, there was a problem, I'd ask and I got told exactly how they were caring hourly, daily, etc and any future care planned ahead etc.
The single room my wife had looked out into the garden/patio area which is lovely. Unfortunately my wife could not get about to see the rest of the garden/out doors, but this open space looks across fields so a little peace of country side and not surrounded by other buildings.
This is a POSITIVE not a negative, even till the end the staff were with me and my family and still caring for my wife and me.
Thank you to the Manager and the many staff again and even now with your support. X
My mother required palliative care and due to the age of my mother the choice was very limited, we had a choice of three however Ladyville Lodge was by far the best. When we visited the home before moving my mother, we found the place, welcoming, homely and clean which we were impressed by. My mum had a lovely room where she was able to see the garden. She was only at the home for a month but in that time she was cared for excellently and made as comfortable as possible. The staff were compassionate and caring especially on the day that she sadly passed away, they were also very supportive to relatives/friends who come to see her. As a family we would highly recommend. Thank you for all that you did for my mum.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.
