  • Enhance and extend our range of services for people with Dementia whether living with us or independently at home

    We will provide more frequent and varied outings using minibuses for clients using our day and home care services. This will help to nurture friendships and community involvement and continuation of a person with dementia's sense of belonging and involvement in the world around them.  We will enhance our already wide-ranging activities and hobbies provided within our care homes to appeal to those joining us for a day or part of a day.  We will ensure that our day care services our completely flexible to meet the requirements of clients and their carers, and offering many other services such as bathing, hairwashing, meals, chiropody etc. whilst in our care.

  • Make provision for carer support

    We will provide opportunities for carers of people with dementia to meet up in order to provide each other with support as we are aware that it can be socially isolating.    We will provide the venue, refreshments and any support, advice, training that they identify as a need.  Some of this may be through signposting to other services.  Those that they care for will be able to come to our day services within the home whilst carer attends support group.

  • Increase understanding of how it feels to be living with a dementia

    We will continue to train our entire workforce in understanding the people that we look after and their life histories and the feelings that affect them, and how to respond in the most positive way. This enhances the well being of those in our care.  We will offer this training through the Dementia Action Alliance to increase an understanding in our community of the difficulties faced by people with Dementia and how this can change the lives of the people with Dementia that live in our area.  We will continually look for opportunities to engage with other community groups to continue this increase in awareness.
