Dementia Services

Personalised care for our Clarence House residents

Dementia services at Newgrange Care Home

All of our residents at Clarence House are individually assessed to determine their needs so that we personalise our care services to meet those needs, whilst maximising the potential to live a normal life.

All of our care staff have undertaken dementia and elderly mental health training, and know how to deal with the additional needs caused by dementia so they can give the best possible care.

We also provide several specialist facilities and features to assist people with dementia who use our service to be as independent and able to live with the condition as well as possible.

Dementia Friendly Care Home

Dementia friendly signage is used for assisted bathrooms and to direct residents to communal areas. We have high contrast electrical fittings and other fittings that aid people who use our service in locating light switches, bathroom areas and other essential items. Enhanced lighting is used in communal areas and bedrooms to assist vision.

Decoration is light and bright to enhance light levels and assist vision along with strongly coloured feature walls and bathroom doors to give definition. Soft furnishings are also bright with plain patterns to avoid confusion. We have brightly coloured tableware which is available for those with poor colour definition.

We also provide garden access in all our homes including sensory areas.
