We respect each person’s individuality to ensure
their life’s dignified and fulfilled.
Our residents are offered a variety of stimulating events and activities on a daily basis, but never pressured to take part against their wishes. These include arts, crafts and music, gardening, outings, leisure sports and regular ‘memory café’ gatherings. Our specialist carers are constantly on hand to help if someone is in difficulty, but are careful to stay in the background as much as possible so that residents can retain a sense of independence, freedom and normality. Should medical care be needed, there are trained nurses on site 24 hours a day, and regular in-house GP consultations.
At regular intervals, our staff have specialist in-house training in dementia care, allowing them to forge close, consistent relationships with each resident.
By keeping a watchful eye while still respecting privacy, our carers can identify routines and activities that best suit each individual. For example, if someone prefers to dine in the evening rather than at lunchtime, that’s precisely when they’ll be encouraged to eat their main meal. If they like to dress in a certain way that reminds them of life before dementia, we’ll help them to do so. First we listen, then we encourage residents to share in achievable tasks to boost their confidence. Our role is to support residents’ life choices in a safe and caring way.
A safe, comfortable, clean and bright environment is essential to our residents’ dignity and peace of mind.
Dementia can be hard enough to come to terms and cope with as it is, so we believe that only the best and most uplifting environment will do.
