There are now nearly 850,000 people living within the United Kingdom with a diagnosis of dementia and we know our help is needed to support people to continue to live a fulfilled life. At Barchester we pride ourselves on delivering the best quality of care, and always ensure that we support you to continue to do the things you love, including for those living with dementia. Our specialist units for those living with dementia are called Memory Lane Communities and are designed to celebrate the lives of our residents, whilst keeping them safe and cared for.
What is dementia care?
Individuals living with dementia may require extra, or specialised care and support. People living with dementia can find it difficult making sense of their physical surroundings. They are likely to experience memory loss, and sometimes problems with perception, that can result in difficulty locating specific areas or specific rooms which is why we have designed our environments to help people to navigate around the home more easily.
Dementia care accommodates for these specific needs when nursing or residential care is not enough. Our staff are trained to understand the many different types of dementia and how some of the symptoms of these may present themselves for each person.
Who is dementia care for?
Dementia care is for those with a diagnosis of dementia who are no longer able to live independently at home with support from a relative, friend or paid carer. We know extra support is often required to help maintain psychological, sociological and physical well-being and we are here to help with our team of experts who are highly trained to ensure those living with dementia stay safe and happy.
