What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a neurological condition that impacts various mental abilities, often leading to challenges in thinking, speech, and memory, particularly among older individuals. However, with the right support and care, individuals living with dementia can lead fulfilling lives with the assistance of a skilled care team.

Every individual’s journey with dementia is distinct, with some requiring minimal assistance and others needing more comprehensive care. Our approach to caring for residents revolves around their desires and requirements. We strive to help them maintain independence and a sense of self for as long as possible. Recognising the individuality of each person, our care is tailored to meet specific needs, promoting their overall well-being and enhancing their quality of life.
