Our Care

Dementia Care

Our dementia care community is designed to provide a secure and supportive environment for individuals with memory-related conditions.

Our compassionate staff are trained to provide person-centred care that enhances the well-being and quality of life of our service users.

Dementia care in Moorland Garden Nursing Home Nursing Home is holistic and considers the physical, emotional, and social well-being of the service user. Creating a safe, supportive, and engaging environment is key to improving the quality of life for individuals with dementia.

Key aspects of our dementia care approach, include:

Specialised Staffing: Moorland Garden Nursing Home provides staff who are highly trained in dementia care. This includes qualified Nurses, Health Care Assistants, and other healthcare professionals who understand the unique needs and challenges of individuals with dementia.

Person-Centred Care: Our dementia care is tailored to the individual’s specific needs, preferences, and abilities. It is important to focus on the person, not just the disease, and to create care plans that respect their autonomy and dignity.

Safe Environment: The physical environment of Moorland Garden Nursing Home is designed to minimise risks for service users with dementia. This includes secure areas to prevent walking without purpose, fall prevention measures, and modifications to reduce confusion.

Structured Routine: Maintaining a consistent daily routine at Moorland Garden Nursing Home helps individuals with dementia feel more comfortable and secure. We provide regular mealtimes, activities, and sleep schedules that are beneficial to individuals with dementia.

Communication: We understand that effective communication is crucial. Staff use clear and simple language, non-verbal cues and patiently help service users understand and express themselves.

Cognitive Stimulation: Moorland Garden Nursing Home provides engaging activities that stimulate cognitive function, improving the quality of life. Activities like art, music, memory games, and reminiscence therapy are all beneficial and provided by the home.

Family and Caregiver Involvement: We encourage family members to be actively involved in the care process. Their input can be invaluable in understanding the individual’s history, preferences, and needs.

Medication Management: In some cases, medication may be necessary to manage symptoms like heightened behaviours. However, the use of medication is carefully monitored and only used when non-pharmacological interventions are insufficient.

End-of-Life Care: As dementia is a progressive disease, it is essential to have discussions about end-of-life care, advance directives, and palliative care options in advance to respect the service user’s wishes.

Regular Assessments: Regular assessments of a service user’s physical and mental health are conducted to ensure that care plans are adjusted as needed.

Staff Training: Continual staff education and training in dementia care is vital. Keeping staff informed about the latest best practices in dementia care ensures that service users receive the best possible care at Moorland Garden Nursing Home.
