Frustrations and tensions are common symptoms linked with dementia, which can be relieved through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction. When a loved one suffers from dementia they are no less deserving of fun and stimulation than other elderly people.
At Pacific Care, we believe rather than merely existing with dementia, each resident should live a full life. Some of the daily activities are listed opposite.
It is important to people with dementia to feel secure and comfortable. Each resident’s personal plan is developed with the full involvement of the resident and their family, including likes and dislikes such as food, drinks, recreational activities and preferred bed times. At Kintyre Care Home all bedrooms have en-suite showers and there are comfortable communal lounges, a reminiscence room and visitors facilities.
The secure garden is accessible from the lounge and some bedrooms, and the lounge's glazed patio doors captures beautiful views over the Campsie Fells.
We believe that people with dementia should receive as much stimulation and interaction as other elderly people and ensure that all our residents get their fair share of the little extras in life that bring pleasure. The most recent addition to Kintyre Care Home includes a state-of-the art hair salon and nail bar, which is proving to be a big hit with the residents already!
To make all our residents feel at home, our team is on hand to arrange the little things that make all the difference.
