Nursing Home

Overview

Badgers Lodge is a 10 (Ten) bedded nursing home situated in Leigh on Sea near Southend in Essex. The home was acquired by TCM (Trust Care Management Ltd) in August 2020 and is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment and remodelling to become a specialist service of excellence.

 

The home provides specialist care and support for adults with learning disabilities, ASD and mental health illnesses who are also living with complex nursing needs, dementia, acquired brain injury and people who may require end of life care and support. Nursing needs may include tracheostomy care, stoma care, catheterisation, gastrostomy feed needs such as PEG and Epilepsy. The home has been designed to support service users’ specific needs, comfort and safety whilst creating a welcoming, homely, warm, and stimulating environment.

​We have a skilled and dedicated team of qualified nursing staff, support workers, catering staff and domestics all led by an experienced Manager, to deliver the high-quality care and support that we have a reputation for providing. We engage with local health professionals to assist us with the training and development of our staff to deliver a truly person-centred service.

We are in the process of researching to offer a wide range of therapeutic activities to meet individual service users’ physical, sensory, cultural, and spiritual needs.  For example, a sensory room, sensory garden, and multi-sensory equipment. We are exploring such activities as rebound therapy and hydrotherapy in house. The chef has an extended role to create a sensory and interactive dining experiences.

We recognise that complex care requires the nursing and support staff to be competent in specific clinical procedures. In addition, support staff facilitate service users to lead independent, active, and fulfilled lives, whenever possible. To achieve this, we ensure that our registered nurses are up to date with their training to maintain their clinical skills and that support staff are fluent in the principles and practical application of the person-centred care approach. We ensure that service users’ needs are fully assessed prior to admission to Badgers Lodge and that all necessary arrangements in terms of specialist equipment, additional staff training and specialist coordinated healthcare input from multidisciplinary professionals are in place to provide holistic and integrated support to service users. We have established relationships with local CCG’s and commissioners.

In compliance with NICE guidelines relating to End of life Care our approach includes but, is not limited to:

​​Access to personalised, coordinated and compassionate care and support from trained, knowledgeable, and competent staff​. ​

Trained staff enabling the service user to express their preferences. ​​

The service user stays for as long as possible where they want to stay

Emergency admissions to hospital are avoided

Quality of life is maximised, and pain and other distressing symptoms controlled

Carers are informed and supported

Requirements relating service user’s religion or ethnicity are fully respected.
