What is Dementia?
Dementia is a term that refers to a group of progressive neurological conditions that affect the brain. There are over 200 subtypes of dementia, but the most common are Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, and mixed dementia. Our Knowledge Hub has more information about dementia.
For some people, they may experience a combination of different types of dementia, which is often referred to as mixed dementia. According to the NHS, the symptoms can include memory loss, trouble focusing, confusion, and difficulties with everyday tasks. Different forms of dementia may have its own unique set of symptoms.

What is dementia care?
As a person’s dementia progresses, they will require more care and support. At some point, moving into a care home may become the best option. We understand that everyone’s experience with dementia is unique, so the care we provide is also tailored to the individual.
At our homes, we never forget the importance of treating those living with dementia with respect and dignity. Our homes offer both residential and nursing care on a permanent or respite basis, as well as day care for carers who need a break.
From the living environment and care to the activities and nutrition, we personalise every detail to help our residents live the life they want. Moving to a care home can bring significant changes, but some things will always remain the same, such as their story, who they matter to, and who they are. Dementia may define a person’s condition, but it does not define them as a person. We see the individual behind the dementia and help them live their life to the fullest.
Living well with dementia
We are dedicated to helping residents continue with their hobbies and passions and maintain their independence and encourage them to stay as active as possible. Daily activities allow residents to hold onto their individuality by doing things that matter to them, like making tea for guests engaging in creative interests, or attending their regular community groups where feasible.
We use various techniques to stimulate memory. Reminiscence is a way to help individuals in reflecting on their past experiences and recording their life story. This can be just as crucial as the physical environment and provides a chance to concentrate on the positive aspects of a person’s accomplishments. This can also facilitate meaningful conversations.
Our team understands the importance of nutrition and hydration. We offer a variety of delicious, fresh and seasonal meals, as well as tasty homemade snacks. We can accommodate special dietary requirements with ease, including for individuals who have difficulty swallowing or require fortified meals. Residents and visitors have easy access to food and beverages, allowing them to serve themselves or have visitors prepare snacks and drinks for them. Residents have the option to enjoy their meals in the location of their choice.
