Dementia Care

One of our key objectives as a Home is to serve people who may wish to make Courtlands their home, who may be frail and have mental capacity, as well as people who may be living with dementia.

For expert dementia care come and view Courtlands Care Home. 

Dementia-friendly care home

All our staff (care, catering and housekeeping) are selected for their desire to work with the elderly and are trained in dementia awareness. Additionally our care teams receive training in the different types of dementia and in appropriate communication skills. One of our Care Managers is our designated dementia champion and is responsible for ensuring good practice throughout the home in addition to the experience and expertise of our Registered and Deputy Managers. 

We design the environment to be dementia friendly such as having the bedroom doors like front doors with different identifiable colours, plain carpets, specialist bedroom furniture with semi-open draw fronts and hanging spacing for favourite clothing items and smooth edges. Our homes have been designed to create the best possible environment for residents dealing with the challenges of dementia, to preserve their sense of identity and to give them choices so they can continue doing the things they love.
