Dementia care

Many of our Care South homes offer specialised dementia care for those living with varying degrees of dementia. Our Home Managers will be pleased to discuss whether they can accommodate your specific care needs.

Layout and decor in our homes are tailored towards dementia care, to give our residents a greater understanding of their environment and help them feel more at ease. For example, brighter colours may be used in recognition of impaired colour spectrum vision, and pictorial signs used instead of room numbers, which can be incomprehensible to people living with dementia.

Our staff have a wide understanding of dementia care and are able to work with residents at different stages of dementia. Social activities are also designed to enhance the lives of people living with dementia, including reminiscence therapy and cookery.

We also offer family support and advice. There are no set visiting hours so relatives and friends are welcome at any time.
