Dementia Care

We are proud to offer specialist Dementia Care at Amberley Care Home; providing a safe, caring, and welcoming setting for those living with memory loss. Our home is designed to provide a secure, caring and friendly environment for those with Dementia and their loved ones.

Our staff are fully trained to understand Dementia and we take pride in providing the highest levels of care and respect for every individual. Through daily planned activities, mental stimulation and social interaction our team focuses on the resident’s particular needs.

What does Dementia Care mean?

At Amberley Care Home we understand that no two people are the same; some individuals may only require minor support, while others rely on around-the-clock care. Our person centered approach to care is designed to develop a sense of individuality and encourage each and every one of our residents’ to continue exercising their strengths and skill sets. We actively support residents to develop their skills to encourage independence for as long as possible.

Dementia Care can often only focus on the illness and accompanying loss of function rather than the person themselves. Our experience has shown us that those living with dementia respond far better when their care promotes their independence and in turn allows them to live each day with dignity and respect. 

Our Dementia Care teams are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing personal and social care, as well as offering support that provides comfort and positive engagement for people with dementia.

Our Approach to Dementia Care

Our extensive understanding and experiences means our team of professionals can provide unrivalled care to our Dementia residents and those with memory loss. There is not just one solution when it comes to supporting those living with Dementia, which is why at Amberley Care Home our Dementia Care Plans are unique to each resident’s requirements, as well as the desires and views of their friends and family. 

Our compassionate team of specialists are trained in how to communicate effectively to help residents living with dementia express their needs and wishes. At Amberley Care Home we offer a range of facilities to help our residents live independently, in an environment that is comfortable and stimulating for them.

We also recognise that people living with dementia may see the world differently than we do. As a result, we place a great deal of attention to the details and design of the care home, from bedrooms to communal areas and every space in-between. From the colour of the walls to materials through to lighting, We’ve thoroughly considered the environment and how it affects our residents living with dementia.
