Queens Court Care Home
Queens Court is based in the heart of Wimbledon SW19 with fantastic transport links and provides 24-hour nursing care for 41 residents, including care for residents living with dementia. Residents can enjoy the easily accessible patio gardens and a regular gardening club, where they tend and create works of art in their pots and hanging baskets that are then displayed around the home. Built in 1995, we have retained the Edwardian front of house in keeping with the surrounding buildings. We are situated in a residential area yet we are close to the shopping centre and town centre.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
We use the ‘whole home’ approach to ensure that everybody has person-centred care that will improve the quality of their life, through life-enrichment programmes, exercise programmes, a dementia-friendly environment and activities and other things that help them to feel able, well, engaged and safe.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Working with a pandemic, which causes us constantly to redefine what we are doing to meet the needs and wants of the people we care for.
