Statement of Purpose
Hankham Lodge is a "Residential Care Home" registered with the CQC. (Care Quality
Commission). The sole aim and objective of the home is to provide a comfortable, safe
and caring home environment for senior men and women who feel that for reasons of
age, frailty, or simply loneliness they are no longer able to live alone.
The home has no bias towards any particular creed, colour or religion. Competent and
caring staff are employed in sufficient numbers during both day and night. Every
assistance is given to residents to help them maintain as full and active life as
possible but, where necessary, willing help is given with personal needs such as
washing, dressing, feeding, toilet needs, etc. The wishes of the residents are always
respected, as is their need for personal privacy. The home is concerned with the
mental well being of the residents as well as the physical well being and to this end
gives every assistance with personal problems. Where a member of staff or
management is unable to deal with a particular problem professional help is sought
from outside of the home. In short, the home provides as homely an environment as
possible with very few rules or regulations where a resident may spend their lives
happily in comfort and safety.
The home does not take residents who require constant nursing care but is able to
offer the same care as would be offered by a caring relative in a residents own home
with the support of his or her own Doctor and the district nursing service. Should a
resident become very ill, he or she would be nursed by the staff in the home until such
times as his or her Doctor felt that it would be more beneficial to receive more
specialised nursing care as would be offered by a hospital or specialist nursing home.
