The majority of our residential care settings provide long-term dementia care to people who need it.
We recognise that helping a loved one to move into a care home can be a very upsetting and stressful time and we actively encourage the involvement of everyone involved to help our care colleagues gain an understanding of each person’s specific needs, likes and dislikes. We fully appreciate that irrespective of which type of dementia is diagnosed, everyone will experience it in a unique way. Our colleague training ensures that the support we provide focuses on individual needs and facilitates communication, maintaining independence and promoting choice.
We provide both residential and nursing dementia care.
In our residential settings, those living with dementia are supported 24 hours a day by trained care colleagues in a safe and secure environment. Those who are assessed as requiring nursing care are supported in our nursing homes with 24 hour Registered Nurse support. Prior to moving into one of our residential settings, a comprehensive assessment is undertaken by a senior team member from the home. Additionally we gather assessments and information from other statutory service professionals and discuss the care needs with those in our care homes and their loved ones to develop an individualised care plan.
Throughout their stay we liaise closely, as required, with a number of different Health and Social Care professionals to provide the most appropriate care for each individual.
