Dementia Care

Our loving care home was founded on the principle that each person should be given every opportunity to live independently in a supportive and caring environment. We strive to ensure that residents with greater care needs, such as dementia, are able to make the most of their day by offering the appropriate level of support.

Our Dementia Care team has undergone comprehensive training in all aspects of dementia and provides care in a safe and welcoming environment. Frustrations and tensions associated with dementia can be reduced thanks to a combination of appropriate medical care and daily planned social and recreational activities.

Dementia Care & Everyday Life

Westerton Care Home understands that no two people are the same, and that some residents with dementia may only require minor assistance in managing their daily life, while others may demand considerably more. Our care philosophy is designed to help residents preserve a sense of independence for as long as feasible.

All residents are greeted with open arms into our home, a home that is filled with love, compassion, and happiness, and which provides active, fun days and stress-free evenings.

What is Dementia Care?

We are able to provide unrivalled care to our residents because of our experience working with those who have memory loss and many other dementia-related symptoms. We provide a variety of facilities and services at Westerton Care Home to help our residents live independently in a comfortable and engaging environment. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy to aiding residents with dementia, which is why our dementia care plans at Westerton Care Home are totally customised to each individual situation.

Our dementia team is proud to provide personal and social care, as well as support that enables a relaxing atmosphere and greater engagement for residents living with dementia, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
