Dementia Care

 

At Hillcrest we see someone with dementia as a person, rather than treating 'symptoms' - because dementia should not be viewed as a disease, but rather a disability.

 

We know that experiencing dementia - either directly or by seeing its effects on a relative or friend - can be bewildering, frightening and traumatic. We therefore work hard to find ways of interacting with our dementia residents that will stimulate them and keep them mentally active.

This includes engaging them in conversation, or music, or perhaps games and we encourage them to talk about their past.

 

All this enables us to interact with them in the way they prefer and find enjoyable. This in turn means our carers enjoy spending time with our residents and look forward to coming to work. The result is a happy workplace for them and a happy home for our residents.
