At RMBI Care Co., we believe that people with dementia can still live an active and fulfilled life. All our Homes can support residents with dementia and most of our Homes have a dedicated Dementia Support House, a safe and secure environment that can support people with an advanced dementia.
For an individual and their family members, being formally diagnosed with dementia is a life changing moment and understandably, it can often bring a lot of different emotions and fears. Whilst there is still no known cure for dementia, there are things we can do to support a positive approach for people living with this condition.
We provide care in a way that supports people on an individual basis, to enable them to have a better day-to-day quality of life. We celebrate the skills a person has retained, working with them to maintain their independence and engage their skill sets where possible.
We aim to start from a position of ‘what a person can do’ and how we can support them; working with the resident, their family and loved ones, to explore what is important to them and try where possible, to incorporate this into their lives.
All our care home staff receive basic dementia training; those working within one of our Dementia Support Houses will receive additional training to support the health and wellbeing of our residents with an advanced dementia.
If you are interested in the residential dementia care at any of our Homes, please contact the Home Management Team of your preferred Home and they will be able to provide more information about the Home’s individual services.
