Our approach to dementia care

Dementia affects different people in different ways, which is why we tailor your loved one’s care to their unique needs. Every care home colleague receives experiential dementia training to enhance their understanding of what it may be like to live with dementia. Our Dementia Champions ensure teams are working to the highest standards.

We work with academic partners to ensure everything we do is informed by the latest research. We employ some of the UK’s most respected dementia experts to drive innovation in everything from the food and dining experience to finding new ways to empower residents to have maximum control over their daily life and environment.
