Our Ethos – Mission Statement
Our services strive to provide individualised, person centred care to people living with dementia in our community. It is our mission to promote dignity and independence, by providing a safe and happy environment, enabling people to participate in social interaction and meaningful and purposeful activities.
We also hope that we can help alleviate some of the stigma surrounding dementia and can raise more awareness of the condition, through positive community links.
Overall, our priority is to support individuals with dementia in maintaining the best quality of life possible.
Our Day Clubs
Our day clubs cater for 10-12 people and provide a full day of activities for those who attend.
Prior to attendance at the day club, we would like to come to meet you and your family so that we can get to know you. We will complete a full care needs assessment, which will include mobility, safety, social needs and nutritional needs. This is to ensure that while you attend the day centre, we are able to meet those needs effectively. We will also give you a life story book to complete, enabling us to tailor your care and activities.
Whilst at the day club, tea, coffee and cakes will be provided as well as lunch. There will be a qualified First Aider present at every day club, and all staff are trained in moving & handling, Dementia Awareness, and the Safeguarding of vulnerable adults.
Activities at Home
We offer companionship and activity provision on a one to one basis for older people and people living with dementia in the local community, creating opportunities for people to engage in activities that are meaningful to them.
We provide a person centred service by getting to know each individual that we support , enabling us to effectively plan and tailor activities to them.
We can offer support with a variety of activities including:
reminiscence, music, games, exercise and floor games, life story work, sensory activities, baking, social interaction, outings and being a part the local community.
