Situated in the Scottish Highlands in Inverness, Meallmore Lodge is a former hotel that has been fully converted to provide high quality, nursing care for clients affected by general frailty. The home also offers specialist units for those living with Dementia and Mental Health Conditions.
Throughout the home you can find some of the latest technologies and each of the 90 en-suite bedrooms are fully furnished and finished to a very high standard.
The well-being of residents is paramount at Meallmore Lodge, as is safety and mobility, encouraging each person to remain as independent as possible.
The manager strives to provide a relaxed and happy home where staff and residents alike can enjoy living and working together. Residents are offered a full range of activities personalised to their needs to ensure they enjoy a good social life and hobbies.
Nutritious and tasty meals are prepared by the highly skilled catering team and can be enjoyed in one of the 13 spacious lounge or dining areas. Outside, the safe, secure and easily accessible landscaped gardens provide an attractive area to sit and relax or even enjoy a spot of gardening. Residents can also choose to pop into the hairdressing and beauty salon for a spot of pampering.
At Meallmore Lodge the provision of first class care means staff encourage residents, and their families, to participate in the home’s commitment to quality and become fully involved at all stages of care planning, as well as many other aspects of care home life.
Residents have access to allied health professionals, including physiotherapists and podiatrists, and there is full medical support from local General Practitioners, the local hospital and the Community Mental Health Team.
