At the stage when someone with Dementia requires more regular, involved care, we know that it can be difficult to choose which care home will be most beneficial to care needs. We understand that coming to terms with the developing effects of Dementia can be a daunting and distressing experience which may also leave you feeling isolated and alone. Our dedicated Dementia care at Sherborne House not only provides care to the individual with Dementia, but also supports their loved ones.
We believe that those living with Dementia who are well supported by a professional team compassionately giving their time and energy are more likely to lead fulfilling lives. Sherborne House is uniquely set-up to provide the highest standard of physical, emotional and mental care available; even in the face of challenging behaviour that can sometimes be a feature of Dementia. Your care will encompass a sensitive and supporting approach – never patronising, always encouraging.
Despite the difficulties of living with Dementia, we believe that you should not lose your freedom of choice. Your independence is key to overall wellbeing and quality of life, so you will find that your needs are always understood through a warm and caring approach. Sherborne House is furnished and decorated with Dementia sufferers in mind, including sensory touches and memory triggers.
We know that Dementia does not define a person, and we also know that each individual case can progress at different speeds. Regular communication, updates and experienced individual care throughout the whole process is key so you can be assured that the right type of care is being delivered. In our care you will be cared for without prejudice, and find carers who empathise with your individual needs. Clinical care is supported with a healthy diet using fresh ingredients with menus to suit all tastes and requirements, and various complementary therapies such as physiotherapy are available to complement your care needs.
We understand how difficult it can be to choose – and trust – a care home for someone you love who is suffering from the effects of Dementia, which is why we want to make sure that you or your loved one is comfortable and well looked after in our care.
