Dementia Care

We provide exemplary standards of Dementia Care in a luxurious, purpose-designed accommodation. Our approach however, goes beyond simply meeting care needs, but strives to care for the health, wellbeing and interests of our residents as a whole. We work closely with residents and their family to create a detailed and bespoke care plan to ensure consistency of care.

Our teams go above and beyond in all they do, working with our residents who live with dementia and their families to discover activities and therapies that are suited for their unique requirements. We promote individual wellbeing through positive and enjoyable experiences for all.

Defining Dementia Care

Dementia is the decline in memory or other thinking skills, severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Supporting those living with Dementia encompasses supporting personal care, daily living tasks and general care to ensure overall happiness and wellbeing. Our Dementia Care services are designed to support residents to maintain independence and individuality, encouraging social activity and building relationships within the home. Here at The Fleet Care Home, we recognise that no two individuals experiencing dementia are alike, and that although some may only require modest assistance in managing their everyday lives, others may require significantly more.

A Holistic Approach to Dementia Care

Our approach is more than meeting care needs, it’s about caring for the health, wellbeing and interests of our residents as a whole; an entirely holistic approach to Dementia Care. We’re here to support our residents to continue living life in the way that they want to, with as much or as little support as they need. It’s important to us that The Fleet Care Home feels like home right from the beginning and the process is informative, relaxed and free from any unnecessary stress or anxiety. We work collaboratively with residents and their families to create a personalised Dementia Care plan, ensuring residents receive the right level of care for their needs.

Dementia Care at The Fleet Care Home

The Fleet Care Home is a privately owned care home with a team of highly skilled professionals who understand the support needed to enhance the lives of all residents and create a thriving and happy ambiance. Led by our Home Manager and Deputy Manager, we have a team of Registered General Nurses, Senior Carers and Health Care Assistants whose primary goal is to ensure that all residents experience the best possible quality of life. Residents have shown enhanced self-confidence and independence, as well as improved health and a vibrant social life while living with us. Coupled with exemplary care, a broad activities and entertainment programme, as well as regular outings and events, ensure that every day is enjoyed to the fullest.

When is Dementia Care Suitable?

Dementia can pose many challenges for people living with the condition, as well as their loved ones and caregivers, such as making daily chores more difficult. If you witness a person’s dementia has progressed far enough that they need more care and support than can be provided at home, it may be time to consider specialised support delivered in a care home. Here at The Fleet Care Home, our staff listens to residents, and with the help of family and loved ones, create an accurate picture of their lives, ensuring that both medical and wellness needs are addressed and catered for. Experience has shown us that when living with us, those living with Dementia find social and mental stimulation increased while frustrations and tensions associated with dementia are decreased.

Combining Quality Care, Friendship and Independence

Our approach goes beyond meeting care needs; we care for the health, wellbeing and interests of our residents as a whole. We have established a team of highly-skilled professionals who understand the support residents need to enhance their lives and create a thriving and happy environment for them each day. The Fleet Care Home proudly presents all who live with us with an enriching and nurturing environment, with an abundance of opportunities where residents are able to strike up new friendships and make special memories to treasure. We believe that making the decision to move to our home should mark the beginning of a new and exciting chapter, one that allows residents to feel confident and happy while retaining as much independence as possible.
