Helping you face one of the most difficult decisions about the care of your loved one with dementia

There comes a time when caring for a loved one with dementia that it is no longer possible for them to live on their own safely, or you are unable to cope with caring for them at home anymore.

Caring for someone with dementia is physically and mentally draining, yet for many people, the thought of placing their loved one in residential care feels like you are letting them down. You know you need help but are worried that they won’t get the care and attention they need and that you have been providing, in a care home environment.

Giving you peace of mind your loved one is being cared for

Choosing the right home is important, especially for someone with dementia who may not be able to make their views clear. Our approach is to look beyond a person’s dementia and celebrate who they are as an individual now as well as who they were before they joined us.

At Fairways Care Home we have experience in providing individual care for people with dementia and have created a living space that is comfortable, safe and designed to help them get the most from their life.

When caring for residents with dementia, we recognise these key factors as important in delivering the best possible care to them:

  • Practical knowledge and experience of providing excellent dementia care
  • Specialist staff training
  • Consistency of staff
  • Dementia-friendly environments
  • Dementia specific activities

  • “We would not hesitate to recommend the care given to our Dad. It was often above and beyond the expectations of a care home and more like that of a nursing home. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They treated him with the greatest respect.”
