At Pembury, we have a little saying that we like to use, “Just like home, only easier!” It’s our mission to make sure that our residents feel settled and looked-after in all areas of their daily lives. This includes the top-of-mind essentials such as security, nutritious meals and domestic duties, but it’s also about so much more.
Here’s a breakdown of all the comforts and care you can expect at one of our lodges:
Pembury offers mid- and frail care at most of our lodges with nursing staff on call 24-hours a day to ensure that your healthcare needs are taken care of. Nurses assist with the general wellbeing of residents, dispensing medicines as well as bathing, eating and dressing where necessary. Nursing staff also do a half-hourly check on frail residents during the day and every 2 hours at night for added peace of mind.
Mealtimes are an important part of our everyday lives as it gives us moments to savour and enjoy with those around us. We all look forward to a hearty meal and that’s why we only serve delicious home-cooked dishes. Pembury meals are prepared on-site by professionals trained to deliver great-tasting and nutritious food options and cater to special dietary requirements.
Our laundry service means that washing, folding and ironing is all done for you, so you can have more time to enjoy the finer things in life. Domestic chores can be tedious and our aim is to minimise these day-to-day hassles. As we’ve mentioned before, Pembury is just like home, only easier!
Feeling safe and secure in our surroundings is vital. At Pembury we have 24-hour security guards on duty to control all access to our lodges and enforce the proper security measures. When moving from a private residence to one of our lodges, a huge security burden is lifted, allowing you to enjoy a more relaxed retirement without additional worries about security in your home.
At Pembury we go out of our way to provide opportunities to socialise and enjoy events and celebrations together. Each lodge hosts family luncheons twice a year which has proven to be hugely popular. Family luncheons gives your friends and family members a chance to come and enjoy a delicious 3-course meal and soak up the warm and friendly atmosphere of these special occasions.
Activities and Entertainment
A sense of community makes life at a Pembury lodge that much more fulfilling. Each lodge has their own activities programme which includes occupational therapy, game nights (bingo is always a firm favourite!), exercise classes and special guest performances by local artsists. There’s always something happening and something to look forward to!
Hairdressing and Beauty
For your convenience, we have dedicated hairdressers who do on-site cutting, colouring and styling. Manicures and pedicures are also available, so you can look and feel good from top to bottom.
If you want to go to the local shopping centre for a lovely outing or some retail therapy, we have special branded vehicles to take you there! Facilitated shopping trips take place once a week to give residents the opportunity to get out and enjoy a change of scenery if they are unable to drive themselves.
