Clarendon Care Home Chandos Lodge Wins Bronze Award by Adventure with Dementia
After taking part in a six-month ‘See Me’ training programme, which is based on stimulation, engagement, environment and education, Chandos Lodge Residential Home was presented with a bronze award by Adventure with Dementia.
Staff were taught how to make closer links with their community, enhance mealtimes, stimulate through music and support residents in their every day lives.
Ann Norris, manager at Chandos Lodge, said: “This is a big achievement for us as it shows we’re taking the right steps in helping our residents who are living with dementia.

It is all that I could wish for to keep him safe and sound in these difficult later years of our lives. He has settled in very well and joins in most of the activities that they provide. They do their very best to cater for his own tastes and needs. The carers and nurses treat him as though he were their own father or grandfather. ”
