Care for People at Any Stage of Dementia

We use a behavioural staging model for dementia care, that categorises dementia into progressive stages. This allows our team to provide tailored support to individual needs instead of relying on generalised approaches.

Our team is extensively trained to recognise and adapt to each stage, ensuring residents receive appropriate support.

Continuous monitoring helps us understand each resident’s ‘normal,’ distinguishing dementia-related changes from other health issues. Additionally, we keep detailed electronic records to track residents’ needs, moods, and health, allowing us to update care plans accordingly.
