Safe and Familiar Environment

Support to Ensure Their Safety

People with dementia may struggle with memory loss, making it essential to minimise confusion and create a space that is easy to navigate. This involves removing potential hazards, such as tripping hazards or sharp objects, and ensuring that the surroundings are well-lit. Familiar objects and photographs can also help create a sense of comfort and recognition. Establishing a routine is equally important in dementia care. Predictability can provide a sense of security for individuals with dementia. Get in touch to learn more about our dementia care services.

Consistent Daily Routine

Having a consistent daily schedule for meals, activities, and rest helps create a structure that they can rely on. Clear and simple communication about upcoming events or changes in routine can also reduce anxiety and confusion. Assisting with daily activities, known as activities of daily living (ADLs), is a fundamental aspect of dementia care. This includes tasks such as dressing, grooming, and bathing. Providing step-by-step guidance, using visual cues, and allowing sufficient time for each activity can help maintain the person's independence while ensuring their needs are met.

Promoting a Sense of Dignity

In dementia care, promoting a sense of dignity and respect is paramount. Despite memory loss and changes in behaviour, individuals with dementia retain their identity and deserve to be treated with kindness and dignity. Acknowledging their feelings and validating their experiences, even if they seem different from reality, helps build trust and maintain a positive relationship. Individuals with dementia may exhibit agitation, aggression, or wandering behaviours. Understanding the triggers for these behaviours and implementing strategies to manage them is essential. Our dementia care services offer a person-centred approach.
