The majority of our residents are people with dementia. Dementia refers to a collection of symptoms characterised by the progressive loss of cognitive abilities that affects reasoning and communication, and the ability for an individual to carry out routine activities associated with daily living.
Person Centred Care
At Camelot Care we focus on providing the best person-centred care for people with dementia and mental health problems. Our focus on this specific area allows us to use the knowledge that comes from our experience of the area, and along with our research and past evidence we are able to provide a tailored and person-centred approach to care for those in our homes. For example, for each individual we create a ‘Life Story Book’ with photos and memories from their past.
Safe and Secure Environment
Specialising in dementia care also enables us to create a dementia friendly environment in all our homes. All our homes have ‘Discovery Boards’ and ‘Rummage Boxes’ that contain distinct memorabilia and other items that help an individual reminisce about their past.
At Camelot Care we recognise that changes to a loved one is a sensitive and long process of acceptance and we aim to not only support those in our care through this process, but also their relatives, providing the information and guidance they need.
