Life at Langdon House Care Home, Cambridge
Residents and their well-being are the central focus of our care homes. We offer high standards of care by trained and dedicated staff. Our staff aim to create for residents a comfortable and safe environment that feels like their own home and where friends and family are very welcome. Residents are treated as individuals with their own, very personal needs and are encouraged in personal fulfilment and independence and offered respect, dignity, privacy, equality and diversity. We evaluate the experience that our residents have, to constantly improve our service. We encourage residents to be involved in the running of the home and to have as much choice as possible.
In the interests of transparency we have uploaded our licence agreement for your guidance; this is available if you follow this link. The licence agreement sets out our terms and conditions of residency and is agreed by both parties at sign up. This safeguards our residents during their stay with us.
We work with Apetito’s team of in-house dieticians, nutritionists and food scientists to ensure all our meals not only taste great, but also deliver optimal nutritional value across a range of dietary requirements.
“I really look forward to mealtimes; there’s always lots of variety and I know I’m getting a healthy balanced meal” Langdon House resident
Nourish is an electronic care management platform that enables care teams to plan, record, report and coordinate care on the go allowing them more quality time to care and support our residents.
“Nourish allows me to log important resident information thoroughly and quickly, and so allows me more time to talk and interact with residents” Langdon House Day Care Assistant
