Genuine Care & Compassion

Dementia Care Information

Coping with Dementia may be challenging for residents and their families, often carrying mixed emotions and concerns. Our service offers specialist care where trained staff recognise the difficulties and challenges of Dementia, helping residents and their families to manage the condition effectively.

  • 24-Hr Specialist Dementia Care

    With award recognition of our first-class levels of dementia care, Pacific Care is at the forefront of dementia care in Scotland. Working in partnership with respected dementia bodies, such as the Iris Murdoch Dementia Services Unit at Stirling University, we have implemented best practices to ensure our residents with dementia live as full a life as they possibly can. Alzheimer’s Scotland, who are delighted to have Forget Me Not volunteers working in a number of Pacific Care homes, offer support to residents living with dementia.

    The frustrations and tensions associated with dementia are reduced through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation, and interaction. This reduction results in the formation of new friendships and relationships. We have a comprehensive staff training plan that equips all our staff with an understanding of dementia and how to apply this knowledge to provide the best care for each individual.

    The highest standard of nursing and personal care is provided by our team and each resident is allocated a key worker. A Personal Care Plan is developed with the full involvement of each resident and their family, which includes likes and dislikes in food, drinks, recreational activities and individual lifestyle choices.  Personal preference is paramount and independence is encouraged to maintain dignity within a caring therapeutic environment.

  • Specialist Design

    All designs and finishes have been chosen to compensate for the cognitive impairments that the person with dementia may have. Our homes offer comfortable communal areas in addition to personal, private  spaces filled with interesting objects when group living overwhelms. Increased lighting and way finding techniques are used throughout. Gardens are secure and accessible from the lounges and some bedrooms, offering a space to enjoy the elements, whatever the weather.
