Latham Lodge Nursing Home

Latham Lodge is a lovely friendly, caring home and we know mum is happy there although she is unable to speak. The staff are supportive and sensitive to families worries and concerns, and always happy :). Our only reservation is the new set up of the lounge area since the refurbishment, it has become very unsocial with the chairs pushed up in rows facing the TV. Rather than in a circle around the room where residents could see others and interact. I know we aren't the only ones that feel this way. It's a shame as for many it's the only social space they have.

Sarah Scott, Marketing Executive at Latham Lodge Nursing Home responded to this review on 19 Aug 2015:

At Latham Lodge we take pride in listening to our residents, relatives and friends. As a result we have considered the layout of the lounge and rearranged the furniture to allow for a more sociable area with small groups of chairs and coffee tables. This now provides a more homely feel and appearance. We always welcome the opportunity to review and improve upon what we offer and hope you will continue to share your thoughts with us in the home.

When my dad was put in to nursing home Latham Lodge from hospital I was very distressed. Katia was amazing. My dad is a very difficult patient and not kind to people sometimes. The carers have tried hard and been there for me to. There is a nice feel to the home. and it was only the second one I looked at.

Obviously one doesn't look for a 'care home' until a crisis arrives with a family member and then you have a problem "is it the right one?" Unless you are recommended, you do not know the home you are placing your loved one in. Myself, sister and three brothers could not have chosen a better home. The staff from the manager down to the laundry team are fantastic. Everyone is so caring, patient and diligent. Gold stars for all!

My mother was admitted to Latham after a stroke and stay in hospital. She had been totally independent in her own home until that time. This was a new experience for the whole family and very confusing, we needed to get it right. Latham Lodge was on a list the social worker gave me so I visited and from the first visit felt very welcome. We therefore chose to bring Mum and she has settled so well we all feel we are visiting her in her own home, so thank yo to everyone at Latham Lodge.
