Dementia Care

We are thrilled to be able to provide Dementia Care in a dedicated unit at Hazelwood Care Home, where the needs of those living with dementia are satisfied. Our Dementia Care team has all undergone thorough, specialised training in dealing with all aspects and severity levels of dementia.

Our carers and activity coordinators go above and beyond, collaborating with dementia residents and their loved ones to identify activities and therapies that are appropriate for their specific needs and to help them thrive, as we recognise the benefits of living a content life for those living with a life-changing illness.

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a long-term illness that affects a number of mental functions, including speech issues and memory loss. With the proper care and attention, those living with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest while participating in their favourite activities. When it comes to residents, our goal is to assist them to maintain their sense of self and independence for as long as possible. At Hazelwood Care Home, we recognise that no two people with dementia are alike and that although some may only require modest assistance in managing their everyday lives, others may require much more.

Dementia Care FAQs

Before becoming part of Hazelwood Care Home, we conduct thorough consultations involving our Home Manager, the prospective resident, and their family. This process allows us to fully understand their specific requirements, daily routines, and personal preferences, which are then carefully integrated into their tailored care plans. Our focus is on nurturing independence and dignity, providing reassurance that we are always there to offer assistance and care.

We prioritise the continual training and development of our staff, especially our specialised dementia care team. This ongoing training ensures that our team stays up to date with the latest advances in dementia care and support. Our team members are well-equipped to provide comprehensive care, assisting with various tasks such as activities, therapies, communication, mobility, medication management, and personal support.

Residents at Hazelwood Care Home have access to a diverse range of activities and therapies, tailored for both group and individual participation.
