Kings Lodge cares for adult residents of any age with chronic, debilitating conditions that require specialised nursing, medical and personal care. Our Neuro rehabilitation treatment is given to residents who require intensive therapy following acquired neurological conditions resulting in physical or psychological disabilities such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s Disease or Epilepsy, nervous system infection or disease, stroke, brain damage and spinal injuries that cause long term effects.
People with chronic conditions have differing individual needs. These conditions are life-changing, affecting the family and social structure. These conditions may be traumatic or genetic and require complex management in order to maintain the well-being of the clients to maximise quality of life. We believe in working together with the family under the knowledgeable guidance of our team, in order to see our residents receive more personalised care, understanding and better support from people they care about most. Then we produce a tailored programme encompassing thorough care, therapy and activities with a deeper understanding of the resident's passions and hobbies in order to make the treatment wholesome.
Multi-disciplinary meetings evaluate a client’s progress, arrest any deterioration and adapt care accordingly. We provide an on-going assessment of a client’s progress in their abilities and level of independence in daily activities (i.e. dressing, walking etc).
Through neurorehabilitation, we aim to help your loved ones regain the skills and abilities lost due to their illness or accident. This can involve teaching clients how to move, talk, think and care for themselves. We also try to build strength, co-ordination, stamina and confidence to allow people to become as independent as possible.
We employ technology such as FES and Seabo to help restore function where possible. Our person-centred approach ensures each rehabilitation programme is specific to a client’s individual lifestyle and requirements and are seen in the context of the person as a whole, incorporating the family dynamics and change in socials settings
If your loved one requires palliative care, then we focus on treating the symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and depression. It also helps residents gain the strength to carry on with daily life. It improves a person’s ability to tolerate medical treatments and helps them have more control over their care by improving communication so that they can better understand their choices for treatment.
The team works with the client and their family in partnership not only to control the symptoms, but also to help the client to understand their treatment options and goals. We also ensure the residents have all the necessary means to help them, including physiotherapy with our our on-site Physio team, Occupational therapy, Speech and Language Therapy (SALT), Podiatrist and a dietician. We now have an improved therapy room (gym) and bespoke equipment to aid our clients in their care and recovery.
