Our dementia care is about providing support so a resident can live as normal a life as possible.
Even though a person’s ability to undertake normal daily activities may be reduced, they should be seen as a person first and their condition second. This is the basic premise of our ‘Person-centred care’.
Making a residential care decision about a person with dementia, no matter what the stage, is difficult and stressful for all concerned.
Providing a familiar and constant environment with active involvement by family and friends is important.
