The team at Hazelwood Care Home in Dartford is proud to provide Dementia Care alongside a range of other specialist and elderly care services such as Nursing Care, Residential Care, and Respite Care.

Hazelwood Care Home is situated in the village of Longfield which is set within the Borough of Dartford. We provide care and assistance to people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s in a dedicated unit. Our care home has been designed to provide high standards of care by trained care professionals in a safe, homely, and welcoming environment.

Who is Dementia Care for and Where is it Provided?

Dementia care has been designed to provide support to those who have received a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Dementia affects individuals in a wide variety of ways and as a progressive condition, there are different levels and severities, meaning where and how dementia care is provided is dependent on the individual. Care and support for those with dementia can take place in either one’s own home, or in a specialist setting such as a residential care home or nursing home.

It can be challenging to know what level of care is required for yourself or a loved one, and where best to receive it, especially when under very difficult circumstances. Those with low-level dementia or in the earlier stages can experience a variety of symptoms such as struggling to complete daily routines, misplacing items, and memory loss. People that are at a more advanced stage of dementia may begin to show other symptoms like difficulty in keeping up with personal care and managing a household, as well as cooking for themselves and remembering to attend healthcare appointments.

These symptoms can often signify that professional and around-the-clock support is required. Dementia care homes have care staff who are available at all times of the day and night to provide care in a safe and supportive setting. In care homes that provide nursing care too, there is also a team of nurses available 24/7 to support those with more complex medical care needs. In addition to having easy access to these care services, individuals also have the advantage of being able to use a variety of facilities, take part in activities, meet other like-minded people, and have all home-cooked meals and housekeeping taken care of without worry.
