Dementia Care

Our home is designed to provide a secure, caring and friendly environment to those with dementia. Our Dementia Care team has all undergone thorough, specialised training in dealing with all aspects and severity levels of dementia. Our team is fully trained to understand dementia, and we take pride in providing the highest levels of care and respect for every individual. 

Our Carers and Activity Coordinators go above and beyond, collaborating with dementia residents and their loved ones to identify activities and therapies that are appropriate for their specific needs and to help them thrive; through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction are improved and any frustrations and tensions linked with dementia are relieved.

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a long-term illness that affects a number of mental functions, including speech issues and memory loss. With appropriate care and support, those living with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest. Here at Ridgeway Rise Care Home, our staff assists our residents with dementia to help maintain their sense of self and independence for as long as possible. We recognise that no two people are alike and that although some may only require modest assistance in managing their everyday lives, others may require much more. Our Dementia Care is entirely unique to each resident and our home and staff are the perfect combination for residents to live a fulfilled life, safely.

Our Approach to Dementia Care

Our team is fully trained to understand dementia, and we take pride in providing the highest levels of care and respect for every individual. Through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction are improved, and any frustrations and tensions linked with dementia are relieved. We strive to provide adequate treatment that helps each individual to achieve their best potential and live a happy and comfortable life. Our home design was inspired by leading dementia research and good practices, with distinct spaces and recognition of the need for comfort and familiarity, as well as the practicalities like well-designed en-suite wet rooms and awareness of the importance of some elements in the home environment.

When is Dementia Care Necessary?

Dementia can bring a variety of challenges on a daily basis for both those living with it and those closest to them. Dementia is a progressive syndrome, meaning that the person suffering from it will need additional support and care as time goes on. If a person’s dementia has progressed to the point that they need more care and assistance than can be provided at home, Dementia Care provided by a care home will be necessary. With the help of family and loved ones, the Ridgeway Rise staff creates an authentic picture of a resident’s life, ensuring that both medical and wellness care is considered and facilitated; working closely with family and loved ones helps us get to know our residents in order to create an accurate picture of their life – in order to ensure their ongoing happiness, comfort, and wellbeing.
