Dementia Care

At Harrier Grange Care Home, we are pleased to offer Dementia Care, which provides a safe, caring, and inviting environment for individuals suffering from memory loss. For residents with dementia and those closest to them, our home is intended to provide a safe, loving, and welcoming environment.

Our staff is highly trained and can recognise the signs and symptoms of dementia, and we take pride in giving the best degree of care as well as respect to every resident. Our team focuses on the resident’s specific requirements through daily planned activities, mental stimulation, and social engagement.

What is Dementia Care?

At Harrier Grange Care Home, we recognise that no two people are alike; some may just require little assistance, while others require 24-hour care. Our person-centred approach to care is intended to foster a feeling of individuality in each of our residents and to encourage them to continue to use their strengths and skill sets. Dementia care often focuses solely on the condition and associated loss of function, rather than the person. Our experience has taught us that people with dementia respond far better when their treatment encourages independence whilst allowing them to live each day with dignity and respect.

Dementia Care at Harrier Grange Care Home

We recognise the weight of responsibility that comes with choosing a residential care facility for everyone concerned. Our specialised Dementia Care team at Harrier Grange Care Home receives ongoing training in dementia research and techniques, so you can be assured that your loved one is receiving the best possible care.

Residents in Dementia Care must be exposed to stimulating activities, have support when eating and personal care assistance. We also recognise that people with dementia may have a different perspective on the world than we do. As a result, from our bedrooms to shared areas and every space in between, we pay close attention to the features and design of the care home.

Dementia Care FAQs

Ahead of their move to Harrier Grange Care Home, we conduct in-depth discussions involving our Home Manager, the prospective resident, and their family. This process allows us to gain insights into their unique needs, daily routines, and individual preferences, which we then incorporate into their custom-tailored care plans. Our commitment lies in preserving their independence and dignity, with the assurance that our support is readily accessible.

Our commitment to staff training extends to our dementia care team, who receive ongoing education to remain informed about the latest developments in dementia care and support. With their extensive experience and knowledge, our team is proficient in delivering comprehensive care, encompassing various aspects such as activities, therapies, communication, mobility, medication management, and personal care.

At Harrier Grange Care Home, we provide a wide-ranging activities programme, encompassing both group and one-on-one activities and therapies. For example, we organise regular arts and crafts sessions and offer music therapy, along with engaging in reminiscence activities. These activities and therapies are specifically designed to enhance the overall physical, cognitive, and social wellbeing of our residents, including those living with dementia.
