Dementia and well-being

We have our very own Well-Being Team dedicated to making a difference to the lives of all Nellsar residents through nurturing touch, compassion and empathy. The services include Massage, Aromatherapy, Reiki and Reflexology.

Dementia is a cruel condition which affects a person in so many ways, both physically and psychologically. Our staff regularly work with residents who are confused, anxious, frustrated, tearful, angry or depressed. They may be frail, prone to infection, bed bound, lonely, hyperactive, twitching, tense, or be unable to sleep or stay awake. Sometimes just holding a hand and spending time with a resident will make them feel safe and relax them.

Dementia Massage

Individuals with Dementia can benefit enormously from therapeutic touch and massage. It can ease anxiety and stress which can be brought about by the symptoms of the disease or any prescribed medication. Our trained therapists are very skilled at adopting the mindset of the people they treat, and they make sure they learn about their life history before providing any treatment.

Dementia Massage treatments use specially blended oils with the resident in mind. These oils are blended to be very calming and relaxing, and to help residents with a disturbed sleep pattern enjoy a more peaceful sleep.

Massage uplifts a person’s mental and emotional state, providing comfort and helping them to feel more at ease. Massage helps release certain hormones such as dopamine and oxytocin which promote an improved sense of well-being. This in turn creates positive self-esteem.
