Our dear Mother, Teresa moved in to Esker Lodge N/Home in April 2013. Due to Mam's progressive Alzheimer's complaint we as a family felt it was unsafe for her to live in her own home.
As you can image this was the toughest decision my family & I ever had to make, but thankfully we did and it has been a good decision and we have no regrets.
Esker Lodge has given us peace of mind knowing that Mam is in a safe/caring and professional environment. Management/Clinical/Caring/Catering & background staff alike have made my family & I so so welcome and treated Mam as if she belongs and they have made it home for home.
Mam is often given the option to help with the distributing of water jugs, sweeping the floor and helping with the laundry, because of this interaction and activity with others Mam continues to be a very active and healthy lady.
I speak of the Alzheimer;s Unit which is fully equipped to care for these persons with this terrible disease ie; large areas for patients to walk about to fulfill there curiosity with rooms and long hall which has different themes reminding clients of years gone by. There is also a court yard with raised flower beds, this area is ideal for the many BBQ's and parties which are held. The food is excellent and it meets all clients dietary needs. There is also a penned in area for the free range hens and geese, again very homely.
In summary I wish to thank Esker Lodge Staff for giving my sibling and I peace of mind knowing that our beautiful Mother's needs are met in a safe and caring environment. The beauty is that there is not a turnover of staff thus that says a "lot", relationships between management and staff is obviously working very smoothly. I would truly recommend this establishment "Esker Lodge Nursing Home" to any concerned family trying to choose a Nursing home for their loved ones. "It's the best"
My Mother Peggy moved to Esker Lodge in May 2010. I am very happy with the care she recieves there. The staff are very gentle, kind and helpful at all times. There is a 'feel good' atmosphere in the building and the standard of care is consistenly good.
I would highly recommend Esker Lodge to anyone considering nursing home care for their loved one.
Our Mother - Phyllis - moved in to Esker Lodge Nursing Home in June 2014.
We love our mum so so much and it was a very very difficult decision for our family to make to move her from her own home of over 65 years to a nursing home.
We need not have worried. The care and attention Mam receives in Esker Lodge is second to none. The carers are just wonderful and the environment is like a home from home.
When we visit her we have quality time with Mam and are made so welcome by the staff - no matter what time of the day we arrive - which is very regularly - there is always a welcome there.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Esker Lodge Nursing Home.
Just a big thank to yourself, Nuala, Bini, Emer and all the lovely staff at Esker Lodge. Its an absolute pleasure coming down to Esker Lodge to see my father. The love and care shown to him is wonderful. They show great care and patience. When walking into the home the smile on his face speaks volumes about Esker Lodge and may I also add the food is excellent. Its presentation and quality is first class.
God Bless to you all.
To staff and everyone associated with Esker Lodge, it is very difficult to express my gratitude in words for the care and kindness given during my stay here. The atmosphere of helping each other among the staff is brilliant and has a profound effect on the Patients here. Not forgetting Brendan and his always brilliant sense of humour from early morning to late at night. God bless you all.
My father was a resident from 2009-2010. The staff deserve great credit for the exceptional care and attention that they gave him. As a family, we are eternally grateful. Esker's accommodation is second to none - it was a home from home for him.
Thank you all.
I would like to say Thank You to all the staff for their attention shown to me while I was here. The service was excellent, the whole place beautiful and clean. I have no complaints. Thank you again.
