Ashford Lodge is a Derbyshire Premier Quality Nursing Home and is situated in calm and peaceful surroundings, yet only a few minutes walk from the centre of Ilkeston.
Our home is tailored for people requiring residential or nursing care due to medical conditions, or as part of the aging process.
Our aim at Ashford Lodge is to provide a new and enjoyable experience for all our residents, we believe that quality of life is the most important consideration, so we have concentrated on providing a warm and homely atmosphere, companionship, together with comfort and total security.
Dementia Ashford Lodge is registered with the Care Quality Commission as specialising in providing Dementia Care.
When the time comes that remaining at home is no longer viable, the benefits of residential care have to be considered. Differentiating one care home from another can be difficult but the quality of staff and training is especially important, all our care staff are dementia trained (updated yearly) and we also have Registered Mental Health Nurses on our team.
The use of medication is a highly emotive subject and must be carefully prescribed. We have access to and communicate with the community psychiatric team. We like to provide a balance of acting in the individuals best interests and being able to provide a ‘normal’ life, we provide a comfortable homely surrounding that will help to reduce stress and possibly avoid the need for medication.
