Dementia Care

When you or someone you know is diagnosed with dementia it can be an overwhelming experience. Whether it’s Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, mixed dementia, Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's, or one of the many other forms of dementia, we are here to help.

At Gracewell Healthcare we understand the demands this condition places both on people living with dementia and on their families. Our personalised care programmes and state of the art homes have been designed based on the latest research and advice from experts in the dementia care field. 

Personalised Care

Our professional teams are highly experienced and work closely with families to create and deliver truly bespoke care. The aim is to enable residents living with dementia to have lives that are as full and as happy as possible.

When you are a Gracewell resident living with dementia, we will celebrate the person you have been - and the person you continue to be - by identifying hobbies you enjoy, the career you followed, the music you love. We also get to know your family members. 

We encourage residents to bring favourite photographs and mementos that will help to trigger happy memories and important milestones in life. Pieces of furniture from home and other treasured items help people to settle and feel secure. 

We also use personal information to tailor activities for each resident to create favourite meals that are appealing, balanced and nutritious.

Home Design

Gracewell care homes have been designed hand in hand with leading institutes at Stirling and Bournemouth Universities.

Lighting has been set to standards which helps residents with cognitive impairments. Communal spaces, although spacious and airy, have been organised into smaller ‘households’ to encourage residents to socialise in smaller numbers and instil confidence. Gently curved corridors eradicate the sense of institution and create a homely feel. Themed galleries and interactive spaces providing visual stimulus and improved orientation include hand-picked images, vintage posters and original artwork from eras our residents will recognise.
