Dementia Care

Our home is designed to provide a safe, caring and welcoming environment for those living with dementia in South Lanarkshire. As dementia care providers, our team has received extensive training in dealing with all types and levels of Dementia. Our employees have gone through extensive training to ensure that each person is treated with the highest person centred care and respect.

Our Activity Coordinators go above and beyond, working with dementia residents and their families to provide activities and therapies that are suited to their unique requirements and to help them thrive. Daily activities increase social interaction and mental stimulation, as well as relieve dementia-related frustrations and stress.

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a condition that affects a person’s speech, behaviour and memory in older people. Those with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest with the right care and support, while staff helps them keep their sense of self and independence for as long as possible. If nursing care is required later down the line, residents can be moved to a nursing care unit. Beechgrove Care Home in South Lanarkshire understands that no two people with dementia are the same and that although some may only need minor assistance with daily activities, others may require much more. Our dementia care plan is tailored to each individual, and our home and staff create the ideal environment to support people in living a vibrant life.

Dementia Care FAQs

Prior to moving in with us at Beechgrove Care Home, a consultation will be arranged with our Home Manager and the prospective resident and their loved ones to ensure we can meet their individual needs. We collaborate with them to understand their routines, interests, and preferences which we then can then implement in their personalised care plans. We proudly take a person-centred approach to care and it is our goal to help residents keep their independence and dignity whilst knowing we are here for them whenever they need us.

We invest in the training and development of our dementia care staff, and they undergo training as necessary to ensure they are kept up to date with the latest in dementia care and support. Our teams have the experience and knowledge to provide effective care to our residents with dementia, including support with personal care, activities, therapies, communication, mobility and medication management.

 

At Beechgrove Care Home, we provide a varied activities programme for all of our residents which includes both group and 1:1 activities and therapies.
