Caring for the future
Our commitment is to support each individual resident in leading an active, fulfilled and happy life.
We do not accept generalisations about what residents may or may not be capable of doing or understanding, instead, we focus on a positive approach that addresses individual needs and abilities. We understand that individuals are unique.
We are each shaped by a lifetime of individual experiences in careers, family, hobbies and relationships to name just a few. Our goal is to maintain these important links each person has with valued elements of their personal history.
We understand that Dementia can cause distress for both the individual and families concerned. Our aim is to create an atmosphere which is calm, relaxed and reassuring. We achieve this by taking the time to fully understand life histories; developing well trained staff; creating and maintaining a supportive environment; ensuring the upkeep of positive and open communication; devising activities with meaning; and continuously encouraging family involvement.
We encourage residents to maintain familiar routines and activities so that life is meaningful.
By taking care to build relationships with each individual, members of our care team are able to understand the person as a whole, their needs, requirements and feelings and provide genuine care accordingly. We ensure that our Staff understands the unique needs of those living with dementia through a comprehensive training programme. Our activities co-ordinator works closely with the Alzheimer’s association to keep up with the current training programs and developments.
