Dementia Care Services

We fill the gaps…

Care Plans for people living with dementia are tailored to ensure we can care for them to the highest standard. We work closely with the Iris Murdoch Dementia Centre, part of Stirling University, to ensure we create dementia-friendly environments. Practical examples of this here at Elder Homes include:

  • Highly trained Dementia Specialist Staff
  • Identifiable visual prompts in yellow as research has proven that this makes reading easier for people living with Dementia
  • Talking mats - to help people living with Dementia to communicate effectively through images
  • Specialised crockery and cutlery
  • Our Dementia garden which is secure, bright and colourful and is cared for by our residents’ Gardening Club
  • Small regular organised calm and peaceful outings where residents have 1-2-1 care

Our aim is to ensure that residents living with Dementia are treated with dignity in exactly the same way as all our other residents. Extra help is provided as and when required (as identified in their Care Plans) as discreetly as possible and our staff are kept up to date in good care practice. This includes training on key aspects of care such as NAPPI (Non-Abusive Physical and Psychological Intervention).
