Annabel court has been specifically designed and built to help residents with dementia and it’s associated problems. Due to the advances in medical science we are all living longer lives. With an aging population comes an increasing incidence of dementia. On average, those of us who suffer with dementia do so for 10 years before death.
St Georges Nursing Home has been designed to assist those suffering with dementia, and their families, in three ways.
Sufferers of dementia need care and attention 24 hours a day. Whilst relatives try their hardest to provide this level of care, it is impossible for them to do so day in day out. We are all human and as such we need a break. With carefully planned day care, we are able to provide a break for carers on a regular basis and consequently we are able to play a small but vital part in keeping a loved one in their own home, maintaining a normal as life as possible.
Our Day Care Suite offers a cinema for regular film viewings, a Dining Room facility for lunch and refreshments, activities to provide mental and physical stimulation, a hair salon/nail bar and bathing facilities if required.
Please contact us to discuss individual care packages.
It is important to consider the care of “ the carer” as the level of responsibility that person has is enormous as they have to really take care of two people, 24 hours a day. We have therefore set aside 2 bedrooms which can be booked throughout the year to afford carers a holiday/break. It is important for the carer to be fit and healthy, both physically and mentally. Our respite care offers the carer a couple of days to themselves and offers the dementia sufferer a safe and stimulating environment in which to stay.
Even with Day and Respite Care many dementia sufferers will eventually reach a point whereby their needs can only adequately be met in a permanent residential setting staffed by professionals who understand the needs of both them and their carers. With our intimate understanding of these needs, we aim to to provide care and support to afford maximum independence and prolonged quality of life. Our home has been purpose built, and every decision we have made has been taken with the dementia patient in mind. From the design of the rooms, through the layout of the communal areas, even down to the location itself. Keep an eye on our development blog as work on the home progresses.
We will be open in May but please feel free to contact us now.
