Dementia care at Hartismere Place

Dementia is different for everyone, so the care we give to our residents is tailored too. Our care is led by residents, not by a routine.

Every member of our team has undergone dementia training to understand what it’s like to live with dementia and how best to comfort someone who has dementia.

At Hartismere Place, we enable residents to maintain the quality of living they enjoy and sometimes even improve residents physically. We have found when people come to our home their appetite improves and they are more engaged, through holistic approaches such as namaste care which involves a range of physical, sensory, and emotional approaches.

Getting to know you

We take the time to get to know you and your loved one; this starts from our very first conversation. We get to know what will settle them when moving in and little things they appreciate, such as if they have orange juice with their tablets or the genre of music they listen to. 

We find out everything about them, their life story and personality, so we know what will calm them and ensure they are happy. No two days are the same for residents at Hartismere Place.

Dementia friendly environments

Our immediate surroundings can have a huge impact on our quality of life. Hartismere Place has been purpose built with dementia in mind. Open spaces and dementia friendly colours allow residents to move around the home independently; however, our dedicated team is on hand around the clock, providing discreet support and assistance.

The residents on our dementia suite can enjoy their own dedicated garden, a space to enjoy and a place where they have their say on how they would like it to look.

Our people and training

Our people are chosen because of their passion, attitude, and caring nature. We have a multi-skilled team who have training in more than one area. Every individual is dedicated and will go above and beyond for the residents. Relationships and communication are what we pride ourselves on at Hartismere Place. 

Our specialist training gives our team a better understanding of how dementia affects the brain, and this helps the team relate to residents and give the best care possible. We also have champions at Hartismere that can provide advice and support on key areas.

We’ve brought together many of the questions that families often ask us. If you need more information, or have any other questions, give our friendly team a call.


We understand people’s anxieties about moving a loved one into a care home. That’s why we make a promise to every new customer about what they can expect from any Care UK home.

We are proud to be the most awarded care home provider for the last two years, with more outstanding rated homes than any other provider. We work with residents and relatives to get their regular feedback, in meetings in each home, through surveys or just in day-to-day conversations. 

Our people are recruited for their positive and caring personalities as much as for their skills. Ultimately, all our care is person-centred – everything we do is tailored to the individual’s needs, preferences and interests.

Whenever you have a question about any aspect of your relative’s care, please bring it up as quickly as possible with any of the home team. Usually any issues can be resolved quickly and efficiently, and the earlier we know about it, the better. At Care UK we take quality extremely seriously and we strive to deliver exceptional care to all our residents, but sometimes things do go wrong. In the unlikely event that you have serious concerns about your loved one’s care, please talk to the home manager immediately who will put a plan in place to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.

Yes, the majority of Care UK homes do provide quality, short term respite care. Many family carers find it a helpful option if they need time to themselves. It’s also a good ‘taster’ of what permanent care would be like. Fees vary from home to home and will depend on your loved one’s needs, so the best option is to contact the home you’re interested in to get a clear idea of cost.

We will ensure that we support and provide the best quality care for your loved one, and we will always inform you of the changes in your loves one's needs and discuss the options with you.

Yes we can. The majority of our homes provide specialist dementia care in dedicated dementia suites. These suites have their own dining area and lounge, as well as a number of en-suite bedrooms. They are designed to minimise hustle and bustle, which people living with dementia can find unsettling. The staff who work in these areas have specialist dementia training and experience and can cater for residents with these very specific, high-level needs.

Yes, the majority of our homes provide specialist dementia care. We care for people living with all types of dementia. While we tend to care for older residents, we are able to care for those who live with the condition at a young age. Please do talk to the friendly team at your local Care UK home to find out how they can support you. They’re here to help.

Find out more about our approach to dementia care.

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach to care ratios. Our care ratios are calculated to take into account the complexity level and general care needs of each resident, so these will vary from suite to suite in each home.

We understand people may feel more comfortable with a carer who is the same gender when receiving personal care and will always to do our utmost to ensure residents' wishes are met.
