Imagine - Music at Melbourne

Lakeside Arts partner with Melbourne House to bring music to the residents;




Following last year's successful music sessions we are working together again with Lakeside as part of the City Arts Imagine Project.

Last year  a positive difference to responsiveness of residents ensued from the musical interaction and a change in atmosphere emanated across the whole room. This time a fully qualified music therapist & workshop leader along with music students are bringing along a selection of percussion instruments to engage staff and residents in music-making activities this February.


Family and friends are encouraged to join in these sessions on the following Monday afternoons

Monday 8th, 15th & 22nd of February 

at Melbourne House - 2.30-3.30 pm

We look forward to welcoming you along.

This project is part of important University research into the use of therapeutic arts into dementia. A 3 year project managed by City Arts Nottingham and the Abbeyfield Society.

National Dignity Action Day - Eastgate Link In

Eastgate Care rises to the Challenge as Dignity Champions are appointed across the group.

To coincide with the National Dignity Day, the Eastgate Dignity Strategy was launched in recognition of its importance as part of daily life for the residents. Offering dignity to residents has always been part of our pathos, but making it a priority gives it a new emphasis for us all.

It is our aim, to support each manager in implementing an initiative that is specific to the individual home. Each home will also register staff members as Dignity Champions who will support the home to promote dignity in care. 




Each home will aim to have a Dignity in Care board  and also a “dignity tree” which is centred around the views, likes, preferences, thoughts and feelings of the residents who live in each home. The Dignity Board will have on display the 10 Point Dignity Challenge poster.

'We want to make a difference to the lives of the people we care for and what better way than to hold our very own Eastgate Dignity in Action Plan'  said Operations Director, Sharon Di Maio.

Alexandra House - Excellent for the Environment!


Gold Stars for Alexandra House

We are pleased to let you know that the Environmental Health Inspection maintained the Alexandra House five star rating.

Five Stars for tea time too, whern you can always rely on a good cuppa and home cooked cakes.

Not only are we good for the environment, we are also good for our residents. (Below) Some of the staff responsible for the friendly caring and healthy environment at 'Alex'



 What relatives really think of us.......

 ''The staff are extremely caring, hard working and cheerful. Alexandra House staff provide a clean "homely" comfortable environment for their residents. Many of the staff have worked there for many years thus providing a continuity of care which can only come from experience and an intimate knowledge of the individual residents. If I needed care I would choose to go there.''

Melbourne House Acheive Marvellous Results



“ We are very pleased and proud to achieve an overall rating of Good at Melbourne House following the recent CQC inspection. Melbourne House achieved a good rating for all five domains as a result of hard work, commitment and dedication from the staff team. It has been quite a journey over the last six months to implement new systems and to change practices across all our Eastgate Care Homes, these changes have been actively embraced by our staff teams and this is reflected in our most recent Melbourne House CQC report.

Well done and congratulations to our Melbourne House team.”
