Dementia Care

Life at The Amwell Care Home is underpinned by the belief that all residents should be given every opportunity to live an independent life in a supportive and caring environment. For those who have specific, higher care needs, such as Dementia, we aim to ensure residents are able to make the most of their day by providing the right amount of support as and when required.

Our Dementia Care team continually receive extensive training in all elements of Dementia, equipping them to provide exceptional care in a safe, caring, and welcoming environment. Residents experiencing the daily complications associated with Dementia are eased through a considered combination of skilled medical care and daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation, and regular engagement and support.

Our supportive and loving team at The Amwell Care Home strives to provide 24-hour Dementia Care, 365 days a year in a comfortable home-away-from-home setting for each client, fostering independence, maintaining dignity, and assuring quality of life.

What is Dementia Care?

Our approach to care is intended to help maintain resident’s sense of self and independence for as long as possible. Here at The Amwell Care Home, we recognise that no two individuals are the same and while some may only require modest assistance in managing their daily lives while living with Dementia, others may require much more support. 

All residents are welcomed into our home where they will experience high-levels of care and compassion through active, enjoyable days and relaxing evenings where everything is taken care of. Together with family and loved ones our staff take time to get to know our residents in order to create an accurate picture of their life, in order to enhance their ongoing happiness, comfort, and well-being.

Ensuring Expert Dementia Care, Always

Our teams receive ongoing specialised training in the most up-to-date dementia approaches and research techniques, ensuring that only the highest level of care is being provided. All staff are trained to Informed and Skilled level in The SSSC Promoting Excellence framework, with many holding advanced level qualifications within this framework. The SSSC Promoting Excellence framework details the knowledge and skills all health and social services staff should aspire to achieve in relation to the role they play in supporting people with a diagnosis of dementia, their families and carers.

Together with family and loved ones, we foster deep relationships with residents in order to create an accurate picture of their life, to be able to develop tailored Dementia Care plans, in order to enhance residents’ ongoing happiness, comfort, and well-being.
