We are an Industrial Provident Society with charitable status, registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
We believe that good dementia care is about having services with a positive culture that emphasize the quality of relationships to ensure quality of life for those living with dementia and their carers. We pride ourselves on a flexible approach.
Our commitment is to:
• Show that we understand the uniqueness of the needs of people living with dementia and their families.
• Work in partnership with local specialist services including local and national organisations.
• Provide high quality services and well thought out physical environments that are comfortable and that help people with dementia live independently, and in the least restrictive way possible.
• Provide care and support that is positively person centred, and that reflects the long term, progressive nature of dementia.
• Afford people living with dementia and their carers, the dignity and choice that they deserve.
• Adopt empathetic approaches to staff development that promote understanding of the experience of a person living with dementia and that embody good, measurable outcomes for quality care & support.
Our aim is to focus on making continued improvements to our services and to that end we have developed a specific Dementia Strategy that encompasses evidence based best practice, education in dementia care and providing the right environment for people to live. We have called the strategy 'Enter My World Model of Enriched Care'.
We have made a firm and stated commitment to the four key principles contained within the Dementia Pledge. Please visit our website to view our commitment.
