What type of care do you offer?
At Struan Lodge we provide a high standard of Nursing, Dementia and Palliative Care for our residents.
How will you help me to settle in?
Our experienced team are passionate about welcoming and integrating each resident to their new home, and we will take as much time as you need to settle into your new home. Residents are welcome to bring personal items, such as photographs, ornaments, etc. to make your room truly your own. From the moment you arrive at Struan Lodge our staff will do everything possible to ensure that your stay will be welcoming and comfortable. We will endeavour to make your arrival relaxed and informal.
Your family and friends are welcome and may remain with you while you settle into your new surroundings.
How often are visits permitted?
There are no set visiting times and friends and family are welcome to visit as often as they want and we encourage them to become fully involved in life at Struan Lodge. However, for security reasons it is helpful to know if any visitors are expected after 9pm. Family and friends can visit whenever they want, as much as they want but we do ask that if possible that family and friends can avoid meal times as it’s an ideal time for residents to socialise.
Can I bring my pet?
Regrettably, we are unable to accommodate pets.
How will I pass the time at Struan Lodge?
Various social events, entertainment and activities are organised to ensure that there is always something interesting and stimulating going on. Our Activities Coordinators will support and encourage you with any hobby and shopping trips, and individual therapeutic treatments can be arranged to suit your needs.
We have strong links with the local community and we will work alongside other Care Homes in the local area to arrange meet ups and outings for all residents to socialise.
Birthdays are celebrated and you will also receive a complimentary birthday cake. Private functions can also be arranged so you can spend some precious time with your loved ones.
What is the food like?
Delicious and nutritious meals are prepared onsite by our in-house cook and catering staff using local suppliers for meat, fruit and vegetables. Our breakfast, lunch and supper are served in the main dining room; however snacks and drinks are available throughout the day. Room service is also available on request.
