We see the person behind the dementia
Led by home manager, Angela Bookham, the Broadwater Lodge team understand that great dementia care is all about seeing the person behind the dementia. Here the focus is on what residents can do, rather than what they cannot. The team have adapted parts of the home to suit residents' interests, creating a pub, cinema, hair and beauty salon, a sweet shop, a vintage-style kitchen and a little nursery, with lifelike dementia dolls.
A love of animals
They haven't stopped there. Animals and pet therapy have always been popular in the home, so a little while ago, the team adopted some chickens. But residents wanted more. So the team went 'the whole hog' and created a small farm in the back garden, complete with pigs, a miniature pony, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
Day care for older people
Broadwater Lodge also has a day club for older people who are living independently in the local area. Open Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm, it offers people a change of scene and a chance to do fun activities while making new friends.
