Dementia care in Bedford
Living with dementia is challenging for the person affected and their support network. By working closely with all involved, we can assist the person to maintain their independence for as long as possible: helping with all aspects of day to day living and supporting them through the physical and cognitive changes that take place as the condition progresses.
We adopt a holistic approach to providing dementia services: continually improving the knowledge and skills within our organisation, working closely with healthcare professionals and experts in the field and working with the local community to improve facilities for, and understanding of, people affected by dementia across Bedford.
All of our care workers receive dementia awareness and sensitivity training as part of the induction for newcomers. We follow this up with regular refresher training. We also encourage further study and training to national standards – all staff studying QCF are entered on the dementia training pathway.
We are flexible and responsive. We’re always willing to try new approaches and new services to enhance and improve the care that we provide. We’re leaders in the use of telecare and new technology for dementia therapies.
We provide care and support at all levels: from general help with day to day tasks, through support with stimulating activities and exercise to supported people with complex conditions.
We’re aware that many people living with dementia prefer to stay at home in comfortable surroundings and we work with them to keep them active and engaged where they feel safe.
