Compassion Starts with Understanding
Dementia is a difficult condition to define, understand, and diagnose. As we age, memory lapses become increasingly common and confusion over daily events tends to increase. Though it happens to all of us as we age; for some, the cognitive decline is more rapid and severe. And while it can be quite painful to see loved ones suffering from the symptoms of dementia, it is often all the more frustrating for those who experience their own memories faltering. So quality dementia care has to start and end with understanding: both from a healthcare standpoint and from a psychological one.
For this reason, the community at the Cambridgeshire Care Home is much more than a dementia care home – we are a network of support. From our compassionate, experienced, and knowledgeable staff to the tight-knit group of residents who live here, quality of life comes first.
Because compassion starts with understanding, each Resident has their care specifically tailored around them to ensure they lead the most enjoyable life possible – from providing activities they enjoy, to cooking tasty meals they like and sleeping at their preferred times. Our team carries a handheld device with them at all times which details each Residents’ routine and backstory.
All our care is delivered and supervised by a qualified nurse in our purpose built care home. With 24/7 around-the-clock care, there is always someone there to offer support, both emotional and physical, to your loved ones.
While we do provide extensive healthcare services, we are nothing like a hospital – we are a community at heart. We believe that activity is the best form of care and we foster an environment full of creativity and fun to help keep our Residents happen, engage, and feeling youthful.
