Dementia Care

Dementia Care

Caring properly for people living with dementia is one of the biggest challenges facing care organisations today. It requires specialist knowledge and a committed approach to understanding each individual and their needs. No two residents living with dementia are alike so we take a flexible and person focused approach to getting to know someone, their personality, their likes and dislikes. In this way we can ensure that the care we provide is tailored to their specific desires and choices.

Many residents who are living with dementia can find it hard to communicate what they need, often leading to them becoming frustrated, angry and sometimes afraid. At times like this having an in-depth understanding of the individual, and the interests and possessions that are important to them, is a vital tool in helping us to alleviate any distress. It also leads to a better understanding of their personality and how they are likely to react to certain situations and different stimulation.

We believe families play an important role in helping us to deliver the best care possible. Through sharing information about a person’s life and character, relatives can assist us to deliver care that enables the continued sharing of special moments together and helps everyone regain the feeling of spending quality time with a loved one, when it might have been thought that opportunity was lost.

We firmly believe that people living with dementia should have as much opportunity to enjoy their lives as possible and our care is always delivered with that aim in mind.
