We extensively provide for those persons with dementia. We have been supporting people with dementia for many years and have built a strong reputation for high quality care. Our care staff are trained with specialist skills and knowledge and our homes are accredited to provide dementia care and are registered with the Commission for Social Care Inspection.
We can also provide for those persons with mental health needs at both Ernest Dene and Brownlow Residential Care Homes.
We understand the specific needs that residents may have, including disorientation and memory loss. Providing care for those suffering from the many forms of dementia takes dedicated and skilled staff to be able to manage the many ways dementia can effect a person.
Our care-staff have been specifically trained to be flexible and look beyond the dementia and recognise the unique individual person within.
Our care plans include all of the key elements required to help improve the daily life of people with dementia. A person centred plan of care is drawn up with specific acknowledgements of a resident’s mental health needs. We assess how a resident’s lifestyle can be enhanced in the home and design a variety of activities to provide stimulation and promote independence.
Our approach to caring for and supporting a person with dementia means that we see the person with dementia as a person, first and foremost. Everyone has their own experiences, abilities, skills, knowledge, preferences, desires and personality, regardless of their illness and the way it affects them. We believe that everyone experiences the condition differently and therefore the support we provide is sensitive and appropriate to the individual person to enable people to continue live their life with dementia and not just an existence.
