The Proudest of Care Homes in Manchester
Care Services Offered: Residential Care, Dementia Care & Respite Care.
Our Regulator Says we are an Outstanding Care Home!
The staff and residents at Acacia Lodge are thrilled that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has assessed Acacia Lodge as being an ‘Outstanding’ care home, something that only 3.7% of care homes achieve in the UK. This reflects all the hard work that the whole care team put in, to ensure that the residents are superbly looked after and enjoy the best in care and healthy living. Earlier this year Manchester City Council also declared Acacia Lodge to be a Gold rated care home. Seems like the Acacia Lodge care team can do no wrong!
Situated adjacent to the A663 Broadway road and firmly established within the heart of the New Moston community, Acacia Lodge Care Home is five miles from Manchester city centre. Residents settle in quickly, with great support from families, who are very much a part of life at our retirement home. We have an open-door policy to friends and relatives, who can rest assured that their loved ones are in safe hands.
We work closely with relatives in respect of residents who are living with dementia. Our Memory Care Suite uses their life stories as a basis for our care and we are proud to have a specialist Music Therapy programme which is hugely popular with residents and family.
Our bedrooms are spacious with plenty of room for personal mementos, photos and keepsakes. Walk-in showers and flat-screen TVs come as standard and our housekeeping staff keep everything spick and span. The Buttercup Café and enclosed rear garden are favourite spots for a bit of togetherness, though there are plenty of other spaces as well where residents can be as involved with others or as quiet as they would like to be. The choice is theirs.
To see what we get up to you might want to view our dedicated Facebook which is kept updated with all the activities and goings on in the home. Alternatively, call our helpful home manager Joanna Roberts on 0161 688 1890 for any advice or to arrange a visit to our Manchester care home.
Our residential care home has earned a reputation across Manchester for its vibrancy, and our often energetic, musical approach to resident well-being, especially in the field of dementia therapy. This was recently picked up by The Guardian. Manchester Camerata Orchestra’s Music in Mind (MIM) projects, which included working at Acacia Lodge, was a great success and had some dramatic results in awakening communication and now has a follow-on programme in the home.
Local community organisations, faith groups and schools are regular visitors to Acacia Lodge and our Activity Coordinators make sure there is always something interesting going on. We have plenty of trips out in the wider Manchester and Oldham communities and often enjoy a lunch in a pub or café.
Family and friends can keep in touch with what is going on in the home through our Facebook pages, which are always kept up to date. We also make use of Skype to connect with loved ones who cannot visit so often. Technology is an important facilitator for us.
That’s not our word for it, it comes straight from a resident’s mouth. Dining is an integral part of life at Acacia House and our chef and his team take pride in cooking up delicious meals of quality restaurant standard. Food is always nutritionally balanced, fresh, locally sourced where possible, and mindful of the seasons. There’s a choice on every menu and no special diet is ever a problem. We realise that palates can change and appetites wane as we get older, and sometimes people can be a bit fussy. But our chef always listens to what the residents say they like and will provide alternatives if someone fancies a special something.
There are no complaints about our cakes and pastries which are freshly baked every day and prove a very popular accompaniment to morning coffee or afternoon tea. We don’t extend to our own sommelier, but we do our best to make sure there is a good choice of wines for the evening meal. After all, dining is a social occasion. And if there’s a party going on, you’re more than welcome to join us.
