What is Dementia Care?

Many care homes provide specialist dementia care to those who have been diagnosed with the condition. Dementia commonly affects part of the brain including the ability to remember, think critically or communicate with others. Depending on someone’s progression, eventually someone will need full-time care. It often gets to a point when a loved one is no longer able to look after someone due to the condition worsening.

A dedicated care team will provide 24/7 care within a warm and welcoming setting. Assistance is provided with any task a resident may need help with, which may be more for some than others. It’s important that those living with dementia feel relaxed and content with others and their environment, therefore dementia care homes are thoughtfully furnished to be considerate of those that can be affected by their surroundings.

Dementia Care at Beechgrove

We are able to provide unrivalled, high-quality dementia care to our residents living with dementia thanks to a qualified and experienced care team. When it comes to supporting people with dementia, we tailor each care programme at Beechgrove to ensure every resident gets the care they deserve, which will be regularly monitored and alternative as and when required.

Beechgrove offers a variety of dementia-friendly activities which enables residents to carry out their interests in a safe setting with the support of a loving team. Our purpose-built home contains practical elements such as en-suite wet rooms, clear sign above rooms, contrasting colours for furniture and clear from clutter. It’s our duty to provide a homely feel to ensure our residents feel safe and happy always.

Residential Care

Residential care is offered to individuals who are no longer able to upkeep their household or personal regime as easily as they once could. Many people as they get older prefer to live in a residential care facility because it provides them with security, social opportunities, and ongoing support each day. Residents can benefit from group living while not having the responsibility of everyday chores including cleaning, washing, cooking and administrative duties. 

Residential care is designed to enhance a person’s social and emotional well-being. We believe providing care is more than just meeting basic care requirements; it’s about caring for the individual as a whole, supporting residents in leading a high quality of life. Every resident receives a personalised care package to ensure we provide the best person-centred care.

Nursing Care

We provide comprehensive nursing care to those who require 24-hour medical and personal care. This type of care is the most effective care option for individuals who may have physical disabilities, high dependency needs, or living with long-term health conditions and illnesses.

Residents who reside at our care home will receive the highest standards of care and support from our professional nursing team no matter the time of the day or night. Our goal is to ensure everyone feels comfortable and satisfied, and with the support of our team, we encourage residents to use the many services and amenities available to them.

Respite Care

Short-term care comes in the form of respite care, and provides those caring for their loved ones with the opportunity to have a break from their caregiving duties. Our staff will care for their loved ones to the highest degree and ensure all health and well-being needs are addressed.

Respite Care is also suited to those who need help with daily tasks following a recent illness or injury. Residents can take the time they need to fully recover before returning to their normal lives. Additionally, respite care can be used to trial a care home for a few weeks before deciding whether to move in permanently.

The Team at Beechgrove Are Here For You

Finding a care home that’s the right fit for you or a loved one can be a stressful time in anyone’s life, and knowing which type of care would be best suited to a person’s needs is not always as straightforward as it might seem. We invite you to our home for us to discuss the care needs of the individual so that our team can decipher whether residential, nursing, dementia or respite care would be most appropriate.

At Beechgrove Care Home, we support prospective residents and their families before, during and after the admission process. We are here to provide peace of mind for everyone involved, and will happily address any questions or concerns and for loved ones to feel comfortable progressing with the next steps.
