What is a Dementia Care Home?

Dementia is a long-term health condition that affects an individual’s cognitive abilities such as thinking critically and remembering recent events. In the early to mid stages, examples of this could be forgetting appointments and misplacing items, amongst other symptoms. As it is a progressive condition, symptoms tend to worsen over time, to the point where the person living with dementia will require daily support with personal tasks or even 24/7 assistance.

The level of care and support required will be very much dependent on the individual, as dementia can have different symptoms and levels of severity. There are a few options to be considered when searching for a dementia care home on behalf of a loved one, such as a residential care home or a nursing home. Both are highly supportive care environments where staff has been trained to the highest degree to assist those living with dementia.

In a residential dementia home, daily support includes helping with personal care duties such as washing, dressing and taking medication. For people who are at a more advanced stage of dementia, they will likely require assistance with mobility, communication and feeding, this is where a nursing home is more appropriate due to the additional nursing support that aids in providing specialist dementia care for complex needs.

Supporting our Residents with Dementia

At Penrose Court Care Home, we are proud to provide Dementia Care through a team of specialists who have the experience and knowledge in identifying particular needs and the level of support that is required by our residents living with dementia. Like with all of our care services, our care team provides person-centred dementia care no matter the time of day or night, using up-to-date methods which help to provide effective care. Every resident has their own private en-suite bedroom which we encourage residents to personalise with their belongings, to ensure they feel comfortable in a familiar space, and where family and friends are welcome at any time.

Our Dementia Care is provided in a thoughtfully designed wing of the home. From the use of space to the furnishings and lighting used, we made it a relaxing space for those with dementia. We believe a care home should be much more about meeting medical needs, but also ensuring all residents’ mental, physical and emotional well-being needs are satisfied. We encourage each of our residents to make good use of the first-class facilities they have access to in our home. Our in-house facilities include a private garden and cinema room, and our activities team organises an array of dementia-friendly activities within our activities programme where residents can reap the social, mental and physical benefits this provides.

We know how challenging it can be to find a care home or care service that meets your or your loved one’s personal needs. At Penrose Court, we understand that every person we welcome here is unique and has their own interests, hobbies and wishes. That’s why our dedicated team goes above and beyond to ensure that regardless of the care type they receive, each and every one of our residents get the care they deserve by formulating a bespoke care plan, starting with an initial assessment whereby we provide expert advice and guidance in determining the best course of action for you or your loved one.
