Residents

At Amberley Lodge we provide a high standard of nursing and medical care at all times.  We treat all our residents with dignity and respect. Their family and friends are always made welcome, encouraged to visit, stay for a meal and spend time together.

Staff are sympathetic to, and able to recognise, understand and cater for residents’ individual needs.  Staff are encouraged to respect the person in each resident.  We find this makes it easier to understand what the actual needs of each resident are.

Discrimination of any kind will not take place, on any grounds.
