Our Dementia Care Declaration includes an aspiration to the following values and principles in the care we provide to residents who live at Pottles Court: 1. I have personal choice and control or influence over decisions about me 2. I know that services are designed around me and my needs 3. I have support that helps me live my life 4. I have the knowledge and know-how to get what I need 6. I have a sense of belonging and of being a valued part of family, community and civic life 7. I know there is research going on which delivers a better life for me now and hope for the future
