There are now nearly 850,000 people living within the United Kingdom with a diagnosis of dementia. At Barchester, we understand the importance in ensuring that these individuals receive the specialised care they require, whilst providing hospitality and comfortable surroundings.
What is dementia care?
Individuals with dementia may require extra, or specialised care. People living with dementia can find it difficult making sense of their physical surroundings. They likely experience memory loss, and problems with perception that can result in difficulty locating specific areas and making out stairs. Dementia care accommodates for these specific needs when nursing or residential care is not enough.
Whether your loved one is showing early signs of dementia symptoms, or is living with a degenerative or vascular form of dementia, we understand their needs and can provide the support and care that they require.
Who is dementia care for?
Dementia care is for individuals with a diagnosis of dementia who are no longer able to live independently at home with support from a relative, friend or paid carer. These individuals require extra support to help them to maintain their psychological and physical well-being.
