How do we care for people with dementia?
Personal space is important, which is why each resident receives their own luxury room. There, they can find a comfortable bed, private bathroom facilities, luxury furnishings and the home comforts that they’ve brought with them. Before each resident begins their stay at one of retirement homes Dorset, we’ll decorate their room in a colour of their choice and arrange their familiar furnishings, so their room feels like a home from home environment when they arrive.
Once we know that your relative will be staying at one of our luxury retirement homes in Dorset, we’ll study any medical records which will start to paint the picture of what our new guest will require in terms of care. Our professional nurses will also carry out their own assessment to make sure that your loved one receive a care plan suited to their needs.
We always monitor the condition and well-being of our residents, and because each member of the team gets to know every single guest in their retirement home, they are well tuned to recognise any changes in behaviour and can alter their care plans as required.
At Luxury Care, we follow the model of Dr Gemma Jones, who specialises in the study of dementia. Dementia is a degenerative disease and can be separated into stages. Our care home staff are trained to recognise the traits of each stage, and rather than increase medication to help a resident deal with the changes, they’ll implement coping strategies that can help the resident beat the challenges faced with each stage of the disease.
