We recognise that every resident is an individual with specific needs, wishes and desires. We provide 24-hour, kind, compassionate and specialist care for residents with a diagnosis of dementia. We strive to improve the quality of life for residents by focussing on their individuality, strengths and abilities and enabling them to maintain maximum independence in their day-to-day lives.
Our staff work closely with residents, families and loved ones involving them in care planning and decision making regarding the running of the home. We believe that this empowers them and ensures that the service reflects the needs and wishes of the residents living within the service.
We have dedicated care environments for residents with a diagnosis of dementia, designed to provide a comfortable and familiar environment for those living with memory loss, and adapted to meet complex care needs. Residents are encouraged and supported to maintain their independence and choose where they wish to spend their time and with whom. A range of social areas are available with small groups of rooms arranged around lounges and quiet rooms to form small, homely environments. Residents may choose to remain close to their room or may choose to utilise the other common areas within the home, attend the beauty salon or dine privately with family and friends.
Our secure garden area affords safe walkways within a manicured garden or courtyard with access available to all. Seated areas are strategically placed throughout the garden area with destination points to assist the residents in recognising their locality and to afford a range of sensory experiences.
We recognise the importance of maintaining community links and the role of the resident as a valuable member of the community. Residents are supported and encouraged to engage in a range of activities designed to address their hobbies and interests, both within the home and the community.
We invest positively in staff training and development to ensure that residents receive care and support that reflects current best practice. All staff employed at the Home receive Promoting Excellence in Dementia Care training, with staff specialising in dementia care developing their knowledge and skills to a higher level.
