Traditional home cooked meals using fresh produce are served and there are choices daily. Special diets can be catered for.
A hair stylist and a qualified chiropodist attend the home on a regular basis. Complementary therapies can be arranged to suit individual requirements.
Residents can also benefit from the varied programme of activities available. Activities staff work with residents and relatives to tailor daily events in the home to the needs of residents, as well as regular excursions.
ll our rooms have recently been refurbished to the highest specifications with new furniture, soft furnishings and fittings. We have designed the rooms with your comfort in mind.
Your bedroom furniture consists of: an appropriate bed suitable to your needs, wardrobe, bedside table with lockable drawer, armchair and other furniture suitable to the size of the room. Your bed linen and towels are provided by the home.
We understand that moving into Birkin Lodge will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. Your room is your own personal space, which is why we encourage you to personalise it if you like, by hanging your favourite pictures or bringing small pieces of furniture.
We encourage people to make the rooms their own. Quite a few of our residents will ask us to take out pieces of our furniture to make room for some of their own from home. The choice is yours.
