Dementia Care

Our care home in Swindon is designed to provide a secure, caring and friendly environment to those with dementia. Our Dementia Care team has all undergone thorough, specialised training in dealing with all aspects and severity levels of dementia. Our team is fully trained to understand dementia, and we take pride in providing the highest levels of care and respect for every individual. 

Our Carers and Activity Coordinators go above and beyond, collaborating with dementia residents and their loved ones to identify activities and therapies that are appropriate for their specific needs and to help them thrive; through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction are improved and any frustrations and tensions linked with dementia are relieved.

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a long-term illness that affects a number of mental functions, including speech issues and memory loss. With appropriate care and support, those living with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest. Here at Ridgeway Rise Care Home, our staff assists our residents with dementia to help maintain their sense of self and independence for as long as possible. We recognise that no two people are alike and that although some may only require modest assistance in managing their everyday lives, others may require much more. Our Dementia Care is entirely unique to each resident and our home and staff are the perfect combination for residents to live a fulfilled life, safely.

Through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction are improved, and any frustrations and tensions linked with dementia are relieved. We strive to provide adequate treatment that helps each individual to achieve their best potential and live a happy and comfortable life. Our care home in Swindon design was inspired by leading dementia research and good practices, with distinct spaces and recognition of the need for comfort and familiarity, as well as the practicalities like well-designed en-suite wet rooms and awareness of the importance of some elements in the home environment.
