Focusing on strengths

The Benhope Dementia Unit offers 24 en-suite bedrooms for residents requiring dementia care.

For those living with dementia, communicating their needs and wishes can be difficult, which in turn can lead to isolation. Our dementia care programme focuses on an individual’s strengths to help find ways in which they can re-engage with their families, friends and the community.

First rate and up to date

Our dementia care has been developed by specialists, and is constantly updated to reflect findings from the latest research. Every member of staff undergoes a bespoke dementia training course to ensure that they understand the various forms of dementia and how it can affect each individual.

We gain an insight into residents’ life stories through recollections, reminiscence and sensory-based activities and community involvement, and provide the best beneficial therapies and treatments.

FAQ

What facilities do you have in place that are specially designed for dementia sufferers?

Our philosophy is that people with dementia have the same human value as anyone else, irrespective of their degree of disability or independence. We carefully consider the environment and how this affects residents. Our secure garden includes a washing line, which a number of residents enjoy using to hang out laundry.

Are there any targeted activities for residents living on this floor?

We put a huge focus on helping dementia sufferers to maintain everyday skills, their nutrition and dining, and community involvement. We also have regular activities such as recall, group newspaper reading, and reminiscence group exercise. The Playlist for Life initiative engages dementia sufferers through music-memory recall, and we hope to involve this more in our offering in future.
