Dementia Care at Nellsar
Listen to Graham Hardy speak about the Dementia Care services at Hengist Field Care Centre, and its affiliations with other organisations. The Home is purpose built and the layout on the Dementia floor was specifically created for individuals with Dementia, including memory boxes and tactile areas along the corridors to help with orientation.
Many of our dementia care homes also offer additional Nursing Care for those who require the monitoring and care from specialised nurses. The Medical Team and other specialist Nurses are also involved if required, to assist in effectively managing any complex needs or changes that might develop.
People who use our services have safe and appropriate care, treatment and support – their individual needs are established from the very beginning. In many cases, their 'journey' can begin with Day Care and Short-term Breaks, and if required, can progress to Residential and Nursing Care – without the need to move to another Home or even another bedroom. This ensures that staff and surroundings are familiar and longer term needs can be met without any upheaval.
Care is centred on the individual and their welfare, and promotes their wellbeing by taking account of all their needs, including:
- Personal Relationships
- Day-time activity
- Comfortable and appropriate accommodation
- Safe, available and suitable specialist equipment
- Some homes feature 24-hour expert Nursing Care provided by Registered nurses
- Long and short-term Nursing Care options
- Nursing Care for residents funded by the Local Authority, NHS or private funding
