NVQ Cushion Project for Latham Lodge Resident

A member of the care team at Latham Lodge recently made one of our residents a cushion as part of her NVQ training in 2015.

Anne, Health Care Assistant, who is a firm favourite of our residents, wanted to incorporate the work she does at our home and also decided to make it for one of our residents specifically as an indication of the relationship that has developed through their interaction together.

Sylvia Morse-Carter Said:

“It was a very lovely gesture by Anne for our resident and very heart-warming. Her family were advised that she has made it especially for her because she liked her so much and agreed it was more special because of the sentiment involved.”

At Latham Lodge, we are very proud that our team build such strong bonds with our residents as we look at each person as an individual. We don’t see dementia, we see a person living with dementia and try to get in touch with the individual needs and aspirations of each person. We also endeavour to offer our team here the opportunities and tools to hone and develop their knowledge and skills.

We are also proud to say that Anne has now successfully completed her NVQ 2 & having a well earned respite before considering the next step in her care career.

We can’t wait to see what she makes next.
