Specialist Dementia Care

Longbridge Deverill offers a range of care services from safe, supported independent living to full nursing and specialist dementia care in Wiltshire for older people. Our specialist dementia care is provided in our Wylie Unit, which is a self-contained area that can accommodate up to 16 residents aged 65+ all in en-suite bedrooms.

Located on the 2nd floor of the home, this environment has been designed in a figure of eight for easy walking access and has space both indoors and out, including its own lounge, dining room, accessible bathroom, and stunning rooftop terrace. It is our greatest aim to provide our dementia residents with a warm and homely environment that provides familiarity and support for them and their loved ones.

 

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a condition that affects a variety of mental functions, including speech and memory. People with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest with the right care and support, while staff helps them keep their sense of self and independence for as long as possible.

Longbridge Deverill Care Home understands that no two people with dementia are the same. Our staff undergo extensive dementia training and we take pride in delivering the highest level of care and respect to each resident 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our highly qualified and experienced care home staff work with each resident to formulate an individual plan of care to meet needs, wishes and lifestyle choices following a care assessment.

Daily Life at Longbridge Deverill for Dementia Residents

Our activities coordinators provide a weekly programme that is tailored to meet the needs, encompassing their interests and hobbies, including music and sensory therapy, memory boxes and jigsaws, as well as dedicated 1:1 time. When it comes to dining, this is also adapted to meet our resident’s needs. Our team members sit with our residents at mealtimes to promote hydration and nutrition, and also encourage social interaction. We are delighted to offer dementia-specific cutlery and crockery if needed as well as both word and picture menus to provide residents with choice. In-room dining is also available.

We strive to enhance privacy and dignity through the unique bonds and relationships we mutually build with our residents. In addition, all rooms feature picture windows which bring in the light and frame the wonderful views. They also have walk-in showers, ensuites and a call-bell system specifically designed for those receiving dementia care.
