Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
The word Dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss, difficulty with thinking, problem solving or language.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged with disease and this condition is progressive which means the symptoms will gradually get worse.
Our aim is to see the person with Dementia as an individual rather than focusing on their illness or abilities they may have lost.
Instead of treating a person as a collective of symptoms and behaviours to be controlled, person centred care considers the whole person taking into account individual unique qualities, abilities, preferences and needs.
Person centred care also means treating individuals with Dementia with dignity and respect. Promoting 'Excellence in Dementia Care' within our homes, we provide a high quality of training to our staff in turn giving greater understanding of the disease and how to manage each individual's needs.
