Encouraging Personal Hobbies & Interests
Hobbies at the centre range from group activities such as Wii games, quizzes, cake baking and gardening, to quiet interests such as reading, painting or listening to music.
At the Kings Lodge Centre for Complex Needs, we care for patients with specific long-term neurological needs that can’t be met in a hospital or general nursing home. Regardless the origin of injury, we aim to maximise any recovery and maintain health and wellbeing. Our person-centred approach ensures all care programmes are specific to each patient. All of this incorporating family and loved ones, and combating social isolation.
At the Kings Lodge we respect each person’s individuality, which means it is our patients’ choice whether they wish to partake in social activities, or which hobbies they pursue. We are able to provide individual outings and encourage our patients to nurture their own individual interests.
Meals are extremely important, and at the Kings Lodge we ensure that all patients enjoy a wide variety of food. Our nutritious menus are varied, and we can cater for specific and special diets. Clients are encouraged to eat in the dining room, but they can choose to eat in their own room. And of course, families and friends are always welcome to share a meal!
We can prepare you a cooked breakfast on request, if that’s how you prefer it. Snacks are available between or instead of meals, and tea, coffee and hot drinks are available 24 hours a day.
The two cooks at the Kings Lodge are qualified to NVQ Level 3 in Catering, and they have taken advice from dieticians regarding menu selection to ensure quality and variety.
The Kings Lodge is home to many of our patients. By cooking and baking, our clients can develop essential everyday skills and work on their independence, as well as produce delicious meals.
