Dementia care refers to caring for all conditions defined as dementia – such as Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia and Combined.
With so many unknowns, it can be hard – or seemingly impossible – to get dementia care right. That said, it can make a huge difference to people with dementia when they get the right care for their needs. We make it possible.
With the right surroundings and a tailored daily routine, people with dementia can get the quality of life that they truly deserve. Time, energy, understanding, reassurance and respect are all essential elements of dementia care. But, ultimately, it takes much more to understand each person’s needs and work with them to give them that safe and healthy lifestyle.
We pride ourselves on a progressive approach to CQC compliant dementia care.
