Memory Focused Care

Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Memory Focused Care

The term Dementia is an umbrella term which is used to describe a range of symptoms including loss of memory, mood changes, and problems with communication and reasoning.

Silver Stream’s Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Memory Focused Care Programme is designed for people who are affected by memory problems, including people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

A diagnosis of Dementia can come as a shock. Even if you are expecting it, this will be a worrying and upsetting time. You and your family will need a great deal of reassurance and support.

The complexities associated with Dementia conditions often provide the greatest challenges to independent living. The good news is that research is being carried out every day, and whilst it may not change your diagnoses, there are lots of positive ways in which you can improve and extend your wellbeing and quality of life.

Our staff are experienced and specifically trained to care for people who have developed Dementia. Our professional care teams will be there to support both you and your family at this difficult time.

At Silver Stream we promote the principles of person centred care. The person centred care approach aims to see you as an individual, rather than focusing on an illness or on abilities you may have lost. Instead of treating you as a collection of symptoms and behaviours to be controlled, person centred care considers you as a whole, taking into account your unique qualities, abilities, interests, preferences and needs.

Adopting a person centred approach to care delivery, coupled with using the latest complementary therapies and focused activity programmes, we can ensure that the best possible outcomes are achieved within a safe and caring environment.
