Focusing on strengths

Dementia affects many older people and some of our residents live with it. The proportion will vary. We do not have a dedicated dementia unit, but the majority of our residents with dementia live on the middle floor.

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. This training is open to relatives and friends who may wish to learn more about it too. 

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.
