Dementia Services

Personalised care for our Newgrange patients

Dementia services at Newgrange Care Home

All of our residents at Newgrange are individually assessed to determine their needs so that we personalise our care services to meet those needs, whilst maximising the potential to live a normal life.

All of our care staff have undertaken dementia and elderly mental health training and know how to deal with the additional needs caused by dementia and give the best possible care.

We also provide several specialist facilities and features to assist the dementia sufferer to be as independent and able to live with the condition as well as possible.

Dementia Friendly Care Home

Dementia friendly signage is used for assisted bathrooms and to direct residents to communal areas.  We have high contrast electrical fittings and other fittings including light switches can be provided to assist sufferers in locating light switches, bathroom areas and other essential items. There is enhanced lighting is used in communal areas and bedrooms to assist vision.

Decoration is light and bright to enhance light levels and assist vision along with strongly coloured feature walls and bathroom doors to give definition. Soft furnishings are also bright with plain patterns to avoid confusion. We have brightly coloured tableware is available for those with poor colour definition.

All the staff take great care of the residents. The activities are varied to keep them interested and to help with their dementia care. The resident seems happy and content which is the main priority for older persons.

We have always found the care of our Father very good. The home is always clean. Our father's clothes are clean daily. His dietary needs are met. His hair and nails and skin are all well looked after. He is involved in lots of activities and enjoys the entertainment provided. The staff always know

how he is and any concerns will communicate them to me and my sister. I have and will recommend this home to anyone.
