DEMENTIA CARE

Friendly Nursing Home For Dementia Patients

Our warm and friendly team believes that a nurturing environment can help to enable residents to have a sense of individual identity. Our specialist dementia nurses will take the time to get to know your loved one, listen to their past, experiences, likes, and dislikes to ensure that the environment we provide is one in which they can thrive. Dementia care when done right, helps to reduce the symptoms of dementia wherever possible, as well as provides your family member with security and reassurance. We understand that for both the resident and family, it can be a frightening experience. We always work closely with the families to ensure that the transition into our home goes smoothly.

What Can Our Residential Dementia Care Provide?

Although we do always respond and tailor our care to the individual resident, throughout our years of providing dementia care support we have a few strategies we have found to be beneficial. From listening to their story to establishing trust and familiarity, your loved one will be comfortable at Willow Grange.

Specialist Dementia Care Home

  • Listen to their story – Dementia residents tend to find that memories from the past are clear and it is just the more recent memories that they have sadly lost. Our team works hard to ensure we fully understand each individual’s history, family, and preferences so that we can tailor our care and activities appropriately.  
  • Trust and familiarity – We understand that dementia can be unpredictable and new environments can often trigger symptoms. Our specialist dementia care support is tailored to provide just that. We encourage residents to decorate their rooms with their personal belongings for familiarity.

Whilst we encourage all of our residents to maintain their independence where they can, if an individual requires 24/7 care, this can be difficult to carry out at home.
