Dementia care and support

Dementia care and support

Dementia care and support focuses upon living well with a dementia and maximising what is possible at any stage of life. This is a very specialist area in which Southern Healthcare has great passion, experience, and expertise, having been implementing strategies developed by the highly regarded Dr David Sheard from Dementia Care Matters.

The emphasis is upon ensuring people are happy, are meaningfully occupied and positively engaged. Southern Healthcare ensures that a huge emphasis is made upon a combination of loving companionship, a rich variety of meaningful activity, whether that is exercise, arts / crafts, playing / hearing music, having fun and getting involved with games, or activities outside.

The individual person’s ‘lived’ experience can become much more enriched and normalised and perhaps is a way removed from what is commonly seen as possible or might be expected.
