Lytham St Annes care home Newfield Lodge welcomed the Mayor of Fylde Peter Hardy to their re-launch event last Thursday.
Newfield Lodge, a luxury care home has been redesigned as a state of the art dementia facility to support and stimulate the people living there in various stages of dementia. Many of the inspirations for the home came from the staff team who are well placed supporting these residents on a daily basis.
As well as a revolutionary sensory room there is an original phone booth, sweetie trolley and Newfield Lodge’s very own bus stop to aid residents memories.
One of the event’s highlights was Mayor Hardy experiencing the ‘Virtual Dementia Tour’ provided by Training2care.
This revolutionary experience is the only scientifically proven method of giving someone with a healthy brain the simulation of having dementia.
Many local councillors and member of the Newfield Lodge and the wider community showed their support at the event highlighting how dementia is a subject close to people’s hearts.
