Rose Lodge saves the day

A little something to make you smile

Admissions during the Coronavirus pandemic

During this Coronavirus pandemic we are taking extra precautions to protect our community of residents and carers and this has been effective with none of our residents showing symptoms.

We will admit new residents to our community only when we can satisfy ourselves that we can minimise the risks.

As a minimum we will want to satisfy ourselves that any new resident has isolated effectively for a couple of weeks and where necessary we will help you to do that.

There may be additional precautions after admission which we will discuss and agree before admission.

Community spirit is all around

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Kyle Millett who is using his 3d printer to make face shields to support frontline NHS staff, essential workers & care staff with much needed PPE visors.
He has very quickly provided some for our staff at Rose Lodge.
He has been producing 24/7 to help frontline workers who are struggling to obtain them.
The face shields are being supplied free of charge, and to help this initiative there is a go-fund-me page for people to make donations to his worthwhile cause, which helps towards the costs of additional 3d printers and materials used. All equipment and materials will be donated to schools when this crisis is all over.

If you would like to make a donation, please click HERE to go to the go-fund-me page.

A little positivity

A little positivity from us at Rose Lodge Dementia Care Home in Exmouth. I’m so proud and feel so lucky to have worked for such a loving and caring home for over the past 6 years. I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to all the key workers around Exmouth. We all know how tough this is but we are continuing to provide a SAFE and LOVING environment for the vulnerable through this terrible time. And how strong we are as a community with everyone trying there best to help with each other’s needs! 
With staff self isolating because of medical needs, staff who are working back to front helping out with shifts due to being understaffed and leaving there loved ones at home, management – making sure staff are well looked after and so on the list is endless! 

And we will still continue to do this when this is all over, nothing ever goes unnoticed so thank you!
