Why choose our dementia nursing homes?
Selecting a dementia nursing home for your loved one is a difficult decision, and you will want to be certain that the best level of care is provided.
Highly trained staff
All staff hired by LuxuryCare in our nursing homes for dementia are highly trained in their respective professions like psychologists, general practitioners, and community nurses to name a few. Every member of staff hired by our company go through rigorous recruitment procedures and receive regular training to ensure their skills are of a consistent quality. In addition, we only employ staff who have passed an ‘enhanced’ DBS check.
At LuxuryCare , we believe that our practical approach sets us apart from other dementia nursing homes. We use the ‘Validation’ method in our dementia nursing homes which is based on knowledge about dementia and empathy for dementia sufferers. Our method was based on the Dr Gemma Jones’ ‘behavioural staging’ model for meeting the needs of older people with dementia
Sufferers of dementia often live in fear as they sense that something is wrong with them and are unable to work out what is happening; this creates behaviour that is uncharacteristic or odd. Our team are trained to help allay these fears and will reassure patients in our dementia nursing homes. Read more about our validation verses medication method.
