Whitchurch Lodge is a registered care home with 32 beds, and aims to provide high-standard accommodation and care in both single and shared rooms.

Anyone over 65 years, including married couples or partners, who because of physical or mental incapacities require help with daily living, is entitled to apply for a place at Whitchurch Lodge. However, most of our residents are in their 80s and some are in their 90s. One of our main aims is to help residents retain their links with their community, family and friends.

As Edgware is a multi-cultural town with several established ethnic communities, we operate a diversity policy in respect of residents and staff. We are committed to ensuring that no-one is excluded purely on the grounds of their ethnicity, religion or culture. We thus discuss with each applicant how their individual and cultural needs can be met.

An important part of our approach to Quality Assurance is to obtain the views of all our residents, relatives and representatives. We do this by our regular reviews with individual residents their families and representatives as well as our staff. On more general matters we arrange separate meetings with residents and relatives as well as through distribution of Quality Assurance Questionnaires.

Whitchurch Lodge is very fortunate to have a very good Activity Coordinator who from time to time will arrange for service users to take a trip out of the home if they wish. Families will always be consulted about this prior to any arrangements being made. Activities take place on a daily basis within the home and at least three times a year quizzes take place between service users, staff and families. Parties (for occasions such as birthdays and Christmas) are always advertised well in advance of them taking place, so that families and friends can try and come along and join in the fun.

Whitchurch Lodge is happy to welcome small pets into the home after consulation with the manager.
