Lukestone Care Centre is a partly purpose-built Home on three floors, situated in Maidstone, Kent, – also known as The Garden of England.
Lukestone Care Centre is within walking distance of a regular train service to London, Ashford, Canterbury, and Tonbridge. The local shopping centre, known as Fremlin Walk, is situated very close to the River Medway, not far away. You can also enjoy a day out at the designer outlet in Ashford, or visit the Cathedral in Canterbury. There is access to a hotel opposite the Home, local churches, taxi services and five minutes walk to local bus service.
Our Home has been specifically designed to provide a safe and secure environment for our 42 residents. Most of our bedrooms are en-suite, are tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard. All bedrooms have provisions for a TV and a nurse-call system. Residents are encouraged to personalise their room with family photographs and furniture.
The aim of the staff at Lukestone is to provide a high quality standard of care, in very comfortable homely surroundings. All residents are seen as individuals in their own right and the care offered is designed to optimise and maintain the quality of life for elderly people with long-term mental health problems. All residents are involved, as far as possible, in their own care and in the running of their Home. They are also encouraged to make the best use of their present skills and abilities, pursue their interests and engage in activities that they enjoy.
The Home is designed to meet the needs of people over 50 years of age. We strongly believe in the provision of peace, comfort, tranquillity, personal care and dignity to every resident, providing quality care of the highest standard. Our environment is a safe and comfortable with a homely atmosphere with the team of well trained dedicate staff.
Activities are centred around the needs of residents by our Activity Co-ordinator. This is based on one to one sessions or small groups. Families are encouraged to bring in a profile of their loved ones and also take an active interest in all of the social events. A monthly activities programme is displayed on our notice board.
All birthdays are celebrated and the resident's day made special. We have many events throughout the year. Our biggest is the Christmas Party with professional entertainment. Summer trips are arranged for those residents able to participate, the latest being a boat trip and there are planned trips to Leeds Castle, The Friars at Aylesford and the seaside.
The activities for our residents include arts and crafts where cards and props are made for all occasions, reminiscence, keep fit, music, board games, ball exercises and bingo, spending quality time with bed bound residents. We offer a silver service lunch either in the lounge or on the patio in the summer for a small group of residents each Friday with a choice of menu or alternatively a pub lunch. Relatives are invited to share in this lunch if their loved ones are included.
We make full use of the garden facilities in the summer with gardening projects. Also, daily activities are taken into the garden with the occasional barbeque.
We pride ourselves on the existing warm friendly atmosphere between staff and residents' families, and encourage families and friends to take part as much as possible in making the residents feel at home.
Each resident has a named key worker who is responsible for the delivery and co-ordination of a mutually holistic agreed plan of care. Families are encouraged to participate in the care of their loved ones if they so wish. Open door management is available to our staff and families to discuss any issues or problems encountered.
