Abbeyfield’s Dementia Friendly Care Homes have been specially designed to help support residents living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. Our local homes across the UK offer the same high quality support you’ll find in our residential care homes but with extra support for those senior adults living with dementia.
We understand that dementia affects each of our residents differently so we tailor our support in Abbeyfield’s dementia friendly care homes to suit each person by finding out what they enjoy doing or get pleasure from, we can ensure they’re occupied, engaged and interested in activities that are meaningful and fulfilling. It is through these personal connections between our staff and residents that help maintain relationships, identity and individuality so an enriched quality of life can be enjoyed. Our staff are trained to value the individual’s needs and preferences and care for them in a safe and secure environment.
Our Dementia Friendly Care Homes are registered and regulated with the relevant care inspectorates and regulatory bodies. All our homes are also subject to continual internal monitoring and assessment, assuring the highest possible standards of care and accommodation.
Moving into an Abbeyfield home starts with a personalised assessment of dementia needs. We meet every resident and, where possible, family members before the resident moves in to define what level of care and service is most appropriate.
