About Our Home

Haslington Lodge Care Home is a specialist care home in Greenhithe, Kent. We specialise in caring for the elderly and more specifically, those diagnosed with dementia.

There are three units where people, who’s condition is at different stages, can live with like minded others. The smaller units create a much more homely environment where everyone is part of one big family. Each unit has a kitchen area where guests can come and make a cup of tea when they are visiting, so that they are all part of our “family” too.

All of our team are trained to understand the complexity of Dementia and the difficulties that the sufferer experiences. We are currently working with Bradford University’s Dementia Group to be a centre of excellence in Kent.

At Haslington we are able to provide twenty four hour assistance, of a non nursing nature, to elderly people suffering from Dementia.

Full assistance can be given with all activities of daily living and personal care.

The level of support can vary widely and we have found it helpful to split the home into three dependency levels. Our aim throughout the home is to focus on, and maintain, client’s skills and abilities. We recognise and encourage independence in whatever form it takes.

Staff are available around the clock to meet the needs of clients and call points are positioned in each room in order to summon assistance whenever it may be required. Recreational activities are also provided to offer fulfilment and stimulation for service users. We have a dedicated activity team who are very popular with residents. They are supported by all the team who endeavour to build ‘purpose’ into every resident’s day. Clients are encouraged to maintain social activities and contacts, wherever possible, which they may have had in the past.

We have single bedrooms, most with en-suite. Some rooms are large enough to be converted for occupancy by couple. Rooms can be personalised by bringing items from home and we are quite happy to decorate around personal preferences.

Medical cover is provided by a local medical practice that covers the home and provides nursing support for short term problems.
