DEMENTIA CARE IN OUR NURSING HOMES
There may come a time when you or your loved one living with a dementia requires more dementia care and support than is available in the community and consideration is being given by you or your family about moving into a nursing home where additional supports are on hand 24 hours a day.
At FirstCare we strive to provide a person centered, feelings based approach to caring for residents living with a dementia. We aim to promote a culture in which people living with a dementia are encouraged to enjoy supported active, enjoyable and meaningful lives in their dementia homes surrounded by their personal belongings, family and friends.
All of our nursing staff are introduced to person centered dementia care during their induction training and throughout their career with FirstCare through extensive dementia care training and education. Fundamental to enabling meaningful dementia care is getting to know the person we are caring for.
Therefore, we will work with you and your family to become close to you and get to know you as you are now and also familiar with your past life, achievements, experiences, passions, preferences and most importantly what is important to you and your loved ones now.
Our dementia care homes have been remodelled and redecorated in line with best practice in dementia care environments to offer more specific support to residents living at the various stages of their personal journey of dementia. Further information which is specific to each of our FirstCare homes is available on the individual home pages within this website.
