Dementia is a condition associated with the ongoing decline of the brain and its abilities.
Many problems are a result of dementia, including but not limited to:
• Memory Loss
• Thinking Speed
• Mental Agility
Here at Shaw, we pride ourselves on providing a very high standard of quality dementia care. We believe in person-centred care that supports the person throughout their journey and adapts to their needs. We understand that the ongoing challenges facing the individual and their family are ever changing, so we undertake regular assessments to establish the exact requirements.
Everyone has their own individual feelings and values, so each dementia sufferer will go through their own range of emotions when dealing with their condition and its challenges. We strive to support people as they go through their experiences, providing continuity and a sense of belonging in our care delivery. We use sensory stimulation to evoke memories and help the person reminisce about life events, to make them feel valued and contented in their home.
