Dementia Care

As advancements in modern healthcare and nutrition increasingly extend our lives, the number of elderly dementia sufferers in the UK is growing. Yet there are still relatively few caring homes capable of providing the comfort, safety, and high quality of life that are vital to the well being of our loved ones. This is why Park View care home is so passionate about ensuring that each of our residents enjoy the absolute finest full-care accommodation in Great Britain.

While our compassionate and qualified staff builds personal relationships with every member of the Park View community, our facilities and services rival those of the finest hotels. Not only are we fully accredited by the Care Quality Commission, but we’ve also earned awards in the hospitality sector for our first-class accommodations. So every First Care Homes resident is treated with the utmost dignity, given the diligent attention they need, and treated to the luxury they deserve.

Compassion Starts with Understanding

Dementia is a difficult condition to define, understand, and diagnose. As we age, memory lapses become increasingly common and confusion over daily events tends to increase. Though it happens to all of us as we age; for some, the cognitive decline is more rapid and severe. And while it can be quite painful to see loved ones suffering from the symptoms of dementia, it is often all the more frustrating for those who experience their own memories faltering. So quality dementia care must begin and end with understanding: both from a healthcare standpoint and from a psychological one.

For this reason, the community at Park View is much more than a dementia care home; it is a network of support. From our compassionate, experienced, and knowledgeable staff to the tight-knit group of residents who live here, quality of life comes first.

While we do provide extensive healthcare services, we are nothing like a hospital. First and foremost, Park View is a community. So with the conviction that activity is the best form of care we can give; we foster an environment of fun and creativity here that keeps our residents happy, engaged, and feeling young.

Dementia Awareness

Unfortunately, many people with dementia live for years without being accurately diagnosed or given the level of care their conditions demand. Without acknowledging and adequately providing for the realities of their cognitive decline, we can subject our loved ones to unnecessary despair and frustration. Many assume that dementia symptoms are simply a fact of growing older, and are unaware of the measures that can be taken to help cope with them through methods such as exercise, gaining insight into life history and reminiscence.

Yet apart from the physiological realities of dementia, the psychological toll is in many cases even more difficult to cope with. It is, however, the symptom we can most effectively relieve. To do so requires a level of care, community, and comfort that many families simply can’t provide at home. So at Park View Care Home, we have implemented a living well with dementia strategy and work hard to give both the physical and emotional support to people living with dementia.
