Care at Ailsa Lodge
At Ailsa Lodge we provide residential care services.
Our Home Manager is supported by a dedicated care team, each of whom have a particular interest in care of the elderly and are experienced in caring for those with physical disabilities, those who are terminally ill, those with high dependency needs and those who become infirm.
The Deputy Manager and Senior Care Assistants have responsibility in ensuring that we deliver a high standard of care and work along with professionals and relatives to ensure that we meet the needs of the residents. An assessment will be carried out prior to admission to ensure that the team at Ailsa Lodge can meet the needs of your loved one. After admission a Keyworker will be allocated, who will become a familiar face and will ensure any queries or anxieties you or your relative may have are dealt with promptly.
Ailsa Lodge also operates using a team of care staff, one of which will be appointed to care for you. The Team will support you during your initial settling in period as well as ensure the delivery of a more individualised and personal service.
Alarm Call System
Should you require the assistance of a carer at any time of the day or night, there is a call system fitted throughout the building including your bedroom, so you will receive attention at the press of a button.
We make personal plans for each of our residents for actions in the event of a sudden illness or other emergency. This includes notification of your next of kin, or others as agreed and recorded in your plan.
We encourage visits by Clergymen of all denominations to the residential home to provide for the spiritual needs of the residents. Alternatively, you may wish to attend your own church with family or friends.
If physiotherapy is medically prescribed, your primary carer will be pleased to arrange this service for you, or if you prefer private arrangements can be made.
Chiropody and Podiatry
We have a private chiropodist and podiatrist who will be delighted to attend to your needs at least once every eight weeks and more regularly as necessary.
Optical and Dental Service
The home benefits from regular visits from a local optician and dentist. Additional visits can also be arranged as required for things like glasses repairs etc.
