Dementia Care

Dementia Care at Craven Nursing Home

We are dedicated to delivering the highest possible care for people living with Dementia. We have created an environment where we use recollections, reminiscence and sensory based activities to gain an insight into our residents life stories. We take the time to get to know our residents as individuals, this ensures we deliver the very best person-centred care.

Our 25 bed specialist dementia care unit is designed to provide a large airy open space with smaller cosy areas for our residents to use. Memory boxes on our corridors are personalised to help residents identify their room through items that trigger fond memories.

Specialist Dementia Unit

Our specialist dementia unit is staffed by registered mental health nurses with excellent knowledge of dementia. All care staff receive enhanced training on dementia and how to support individuals to live well despite living with dementia. Activities are provided that are both meaningful and cognitively stimulating for our residents. The team works with residents and their families to identify their preferences to fulfil individual social needs.

We ensure that the environment we offer changes with the needs of our residents which is why we have recently provided a sensory garden, specifically designed with those living with dementia in mind.
