Purpose built with support from the University of Sterling Dementia Services Development Centre we cater for low – mid levels of dementia. This beautiful home is tailored to create the best environment both in design and culture.
Residents at Worthington Lake choose how they want to spend their time, pursuing a wide range of interests and hobbies – from gardening and flower arranging to movie nights and baking. Guests are free to furnish their luxury en-suite bedroom however they like, with personal belongings – cushions, art or ornaments – providing that true homely feeling.
With the right surroundings and a tailored daily routine, people with dementia can get the quality of life that they truly deserve. Time, energy, understanding, reassurance and respect are all essential elements of dementia care. But, ultimately, it takes much more to understand each person’s needs and work with them to give them that safe and healthy lifestyle.
At Worthington Lake, we provide a luxury hotel-like experience, catering for residents’ every need. Respite guests benefit from a wide range of activities in our homes; we want to ensure our guests live well, pursuing any interests or hobbies they may have – or want to take up.
Expertly trained staff and open-plan kitchen and living rooms provide residents with empowerment. With balconies looking over Worthington Lake residents can take a stroll to the beauty spot via our private path. Driven by excellent standards activities engage residents and Therapists support them to live a fulfilled life.
We only ask that you try and avoid mealtimes if that isn’t possible just let us know.
Put simple our home is like your home. Staff are incorporated into the secure homely environment, there’s no uniform and no hierarchy below the management team – this benefits the team and our residents. It’s a community at Worthington and residents are encouraged to get involved in the day-to-day running of the home giving them a sense of purpose – but only if they choose to!
Unlike other homes in the group, we don’t have an Activity Coordinator, we see this as a benefit! It means all our staff are hands-on in delivering meaningful activities and building great relationships with our residents, it’s everyone’s responsibility.
We treat Worthington like we would our home, residents can do as they please – we just encourage an active, engaging and healthy lifestyle.
