Dementia Care

Specialist Dementia Care

The Home Manager, Daniel Holt, is a Registered Mental Health Nurse so our dementia care is of the highest possible standard aswell as all our staff being trained in specific dementia care. We have created at the Glen an environment specifically for people with dementia as well as concentrating on creating purposeful and meaningful activities to keep life interesting and fun. We know that each person is an individual, and every single person living with a dementia is unique so we ensure their care is personalised.

By creating the right environment, we aim to minimise anxiety and promote overall health and well being to each of our residents. The Glen is designed to enhance our residents’ quality of life by providing features to maximise independence, as well as creating a safe, stimulating and restful sanctuary with outstanding facilities.

The Glen was designed to offer the most supportive environment possible for people experiencing dementia. All our staff have been trained to recognise and deal sensitively with the wishes of the person with dementia, from the nursing staff, house keeping staff to the catering staff of the home – every staff member.

The open-plan design of the Glen aims to maximise independence and orientation, and reduce dependence on memory.

Our Core Dementia Values

People living at the Glen should feel secure and experience a sense of belonging. All of our residents must have access to human companionship and the opportunity to develop friendships. Staff, residents and their families should work together to create purpose and meaning for each day. Finally, we want everybody in the Glen to be free to make their own decisions and choices.

Active and independent lifestyles

However anyone that enters the Glen’s community, our staff recognise the importance of enabling the person with dementia to retain their interests and abilities for as long as possible. Our rehabilitative approach has successfully enabled individuals to regain skills that were thought to be lost to dementia.

Knowing what is important to the person with dementia enables us to encourage individuals to continue to engage in outdoor pursuits and to maintain relationships with younger members of their family and the community.

Supporting Families

At the Glen we understand that facing the fact that a loved one is living with dementia and is unable to cope alone independently can mean addressing some challenging and difficult times. Whether a resident is living with dementia or receiving residential care or nursing care, we provide unrivalled levels of support to all our residents’ family, including events to help families better understand the condition.
