Staff made heroic efforts to get to work at both care homes over the last two days. Some walked long distances, others stayed overnight, whilst some were picked up by the care home owner in a 4×4 vehicle.
Everyone pulled together to ensure that our residents were safe, warm, and cared for in the way they would normally expect.
“It’s so encouraging to see people working as a team and putting themselves at risk for the sake of others. It shows that staff really do care and its not just a job” said Mary Cottrell who owns Tydraw and Wentworth Lodges.
“Thanks to all our amazing staff who showed their committment and care for our residents over the last couple of days”.

Our beautiful care home for older people and those with dementia has had a giant makeover in the last few months. The additions and improvements have been too numerous to describe in full, but just to whet your appetite here are details of just some of the many changes.
Our dining room has had a complete refurbishment – new décor, tables, lights and more. To complete the experience all our menus have been updated with our staff receiving additional training to enable them to deliver meals that you would normally expect from a restaurant (or at home if “MUM” was a really good cook!).
The stairways have had carpet re fitted, the downstairs bathroom /wet room has been completely refurbished, the remaining UPVC windows have been fitted , the rear garden has had some TLC and there is a definite feel that “Spring is in the air”.
Of course we couldn’t forget our kitchen! That too has been completely refitted, black and white and looks great. All the staff and residents approve. Mind you, it was a serious challenge having no kitchen at all for 3 days but we overcame and everyone enjoyed a perfectly normal diet! We are sure that the environmental health officer will think its pretty good too. We want to keep our 5 star rating for food hygiene that we have had for many years.
But that is not all. The manager of our sister home Tydraw Lodge, June Lyons, has applied to CSSIW to be the registered manager of both homes. This will enable her to pass on the skills and knowledge she has gained in 30 years of managing Tydraw Lodge to our up and coming expanded management team.
Talking of which, we are delighted that Danielle Cottrell is now working under June Lyons in the day to day management of Wentworth. She is full of energy, enthusiasm and great ideas. She is currently developing personal individual activity plans for every resident, has recruited some additional members of the staff team, and says “She is addicted to Wentworth Lodge!” But actually that is the kind of effect the home has on people. Wentworth lodge is unique and provides a wonderful standard of care. It really is a beautiful home and together with our sister home Tydraw Lodge , we believe we are right to be proud of the care we provide.
So why not come and view the home and check out what people are saying about us in our quality surveys. Even if you don’t need us now you may do one day!
