Dementia Care

Throughout our charity we are focused in offering the practical care and emotional support to help people cope with the loss of memory, and give ongoing advice to family and friends.

Our ‘dementia care leads’ and teams of dementia link workers ensure that our staff are up to date with the latest training and understanding of dementia. Our homes are subtly adjusted to ease common practical challenges when living with dementia, such as suitable signage, use of colours and appropriate tableware, to give a secure and safe environment.

Our services offer a wide range of support;

Secret Garden Community Hub offers flexible day care for those living with dementia, with a special service for those with younger onset dementia

Respite care in our homes is available from as little as one night, to several months

Residential or Nursing care, all our homes can support those living with dementia and Faithfull House has a specialist dementia floor - the Bluebell suite. All our staff receive specialist training so that they can work with skill and confidence to assist those living with dementia

Support meetings, Our programme of MAST (Memory Awareness Support Team) meetings provides advice to families and friends and offers the opportunity to understand more about dementia, interact with other people in similar situations and receive advice relating to their loved ones.

‘We believe that people living with dementia can still live a full and contented life. Our care is about finding what makes each person relaxed and comfortable in their environment, helping them, and their loved ones, to adjust to this new chapter in their lives’

Suzanne Booker, Director of Care

‘Mum has thrived since moving into St Faith’s. Despite the fact that mum’s vascular dementia is a progressive condition, I feel the care she has received has helped prolonged her life and given her and the family a way of dealing with this awful disease.’
