Residential and Residential Dementia Care at St Mary’s Riverside is a source of immense pride for Home Manager Laura Barnsley and our dedicated care team. But what exactly does good dementia care entail?
In our carefully designed environment, we prioritise creating a homely atmosphere tailored to our residents’ unique needs. You’ll find a range of engaging activities, appropriate memorabilia, clear way-finding, and sensory objects thoughtfully placed throughout our facility. Each bedroom features familiar photos and signage, providing crucial orientation cues, while similar items grace our corridors.
Why Consider a Residential Care Home for Dementia?
People with dementia may find a residential care home to be the best option for several reasons:
As dementia progresses, their needs may increase, necessitating specialised care.
After a crisis, such as a hospital admission, their condition may deteriorate, leading to a need for continuous care.
Their family or home caregiver may no longer be able to provide the necessary support.
In some cases, 24-hour supervision becomes a requirement.
Choosing the Right Care Home
Selecting a care home can seem daunting, but finding the right one can profoundly impact the social and overall well-being of the person with dementia and everyone involved. Planning and involving individuals with dementia, considering their preferences, can guide the decision-making process.
Here are some steps to help you make an informed choice:
  • Create a list of potential care homes that match your criteria and values.
  • Develop a checklist of factors that matter to you and the person with dementia, including staff attitude, accommodation quality, and available activities.
  • Evaluate the warmth and interest shown by the staff in your relative.
  • Assess the living conditions and amenities.
  • Consider the range of activities available and whether they align with your relative’s interests and needs.
