Welcome to White Lodge & St Helens House
White Lodge & St Helens House is a large family run Residential and Dementia Home, accredited in Dementia Care Bournemouth Borough Council. We provide a high standard of quality care and treat each and every resident as an individual. As part of the moving in process the Home's Registered Manager or Proprietor meets each resident and their families to gain a detailed understating about an individual's care needs before they move in. This assesment allows White Lodge & St Helens to develop a care plan, ensuring the staff at the Home are fully prepared from the day of admission. This allows our Home to have a true understanding of all residents, along with a detailed care plan before a resident's arrival. This ensures all our staff are fully prepared for when they come into the Home.
White Lodge & St Helens has been awarded The National GSF (Gold Standards Framework) for End of Life Care. Staff are trained to provide specialised End of Life care to ensure better lives for people.
The Home has been owned by the Higginson family for over 30 years and Jan Porter has been successfully managaing the home for over 6 years. Jan has over 10 years experience in the management of care homes and has achieved her Level 4 Leadership & Management qualification for Care Services. Great pride is taken in providing excellent care and facilities. White Lodge & St Helens House provides a welcoming, warm and caring atmosphere, with qualified NVQ accredited staff who have all received training in dementia ensuring our residents are given the care they deserve.
