About our Kent Rest Home
Abbey Lodge Rest Home sits in the South East of England, just outside the beautiful Kent town of Hythe on the coast; magnificent sea views and even glimpses of the French coast are just part of everyday life at our residential care home!
Owned & managed by Liz Bown since October 1996, our comfortable and relaxed residential care home provides residents with the opportunity to have peace and quiet, privacy and independence during their older years.
Liz takes a highly active role in the day to day running of our residential care accommodation, keeping it family orientated and working closely with their qualified team of carers, activity co-ordinators, chefs and maintenance operatives.
They are ably assisted by the care home's deputy managers, Joan Edwards, who is working towards her NVQ 5 and has worked with Liz for over 7 years & Rhiannon McConnell who has recently been promoted to Trainee Deputy Manager. Rhiannon has worked at Abbey Lodge for the past 3 years.as a carer and senior carer.
We enjoy looking after our residents and support and provide them with all their special needs. Individuality is so important and whether you’d like breakfast in bed, a walk in the garden at a certain time or have any number of dietary needs, just let us know and we will make it all happen!
Family is important to our residents and we are happy for them to visit at any time of the day or night. Many of our residential care accommodation improvements over the years have been based on suggestions and feedback from resident’s families, so we are always happy to have you call in and speak to us.
We work hard to find the very best staff who can provide qualified and attentive care whilst being friendly and provide a personal care service. The care home manager, Liz, is qualified with an NVQ Level 4 in care and has a registered Managers award. She is also our Lead in Infection Control and ensures that all staff are trained and qualified to at least NVQ Level 2 and Seniors to Level 3.
For your peace of mind, we have an in-house training programme to ensure that all staff have access to all courses and the chance to improve their skills.
Whatever your hopes and requirements for a residential care home and no matter if you are based in Kent, Folkestone, Shepway, New Romney, Hythe or even further afield across the whole of the South East of England, contact the team at Abbey Lodge Rest Home anytime to ask questions, arrange a visit or book a short term trial stay. We look forward to meeting you!
