Dementia

 

Our care homes provide specialist nursing care for people living with complex dementia, including early on-set dementia.

There are several different types of dementia that can lead to complex care needs and challenging behaviour. Our dementia care homes have been developed and adapted to meet the needs of people living with dementia, to help them to maintain their independence and dignity.

A personalised approach to care

Our approach is personalised to the individuals that we support – we work with them, their loved ones and professionals to design a care plan that’s tailored to their needs and goals.

We take time to understand each person’s life story and empower people to continue to do the things that they enjoy for as long as they’re able to do so.

High dependency nursing

People living with dementia may also have other conditions or illnesses, such as epilepsy or diabetes, or require high dependency nursing care, such as a tracheostomy and ventilated care, or feeding regimes including PEG and Dysphagia.

All of our homes are led by Registered Nurses, and supported by an in-house team of Health Care Assistants and Life Skills Coordinators, so that people can access the care they need, from the comfort of the home.
