Caring for People with Dementia

Choosing the right care home for your loved one with a diagnosis of dementia is an important decision. We take a positive approach to the care of people who have dementia ensuring that their needs, wants and wishes are met.

Our fully trained staff help our residents to live to the best of their abilities.

All our residents are treated as individuals, we take time to get know them so we can personalise the way we care for them. The care we provide centres around each person’s needs, wants and wishes and not fixed routines. Careful thought is given to make sure the environment is relaxing, calm and homely ensuring that residents are stimulated.

During the initial assessment and throughout their stay at the Maples we ask residents about their likes and dislikes as we know that things changed over time. As part of the process we will look at what time they like to get up, the type of food they like, whether they have any particular interests and hobbies.

Residents are encouraged to have personal items in their room, which creates a homely atmosphere and makes them feel more comfortable.

We take time to sit with our residents and reminisce about happy memories and our activities coordinator carries out regular reminiscing sessions as this can create a sense of wellbeing.
