Our 10 bed special care unit ‘Murray River House’ is designed and staffed to ensure that the special needs of older people with dementia are met.
Dementia is associated with a decline in memory, which may reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities.
Making the decision to find alternative care for a person with dementia can be one of the most difficult decisions a carer will make, and some people require specialised dementia care. All of our staff undergo specialist dementia training, equipping them with strategies to enhance quality of life. It teaches them to put the person experiencing dementia first and their condition or illness second.
We call this ‘person centred’ care and it ensures that an older person in our care treated as an individual.
