Dementia is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer. But awareness and understanding remains low and many families are facing it alone. That’s why, during the Week, we want everyone to come together and take action. By uniting, we can raise awareness, offer help & understanding and improve care. You can find more information on the Alzheimer’s Society website.
To mark Dementia Awareness Week, Four Seasons Health Care is hosting four guest blogs from our team of dementia experts.
Our final blog takes the form of a poem and comes from Nina Hutchison from Gowrie House care home in Fife.
Nina has supported colleagues in facilitating training modules within the Dementia Care Framework. She has been so inspired by the Dementia care framework, and especially the Dementia Experience, that she wrote this poem about her understanding of how a resident may feel living with Dementia.
Dementia Experience Poem
Walk in my Shoes,
Just for a day,
Feel how I feel,
It’s the easiest way,
The jigsaw is there,
The pieces are too,
They don’t seem to fit
It’s a bit of a do,
Hear what I hear,
And see what I see,
I’m not sure where I am,
But I know I’m me,
Step into my shoes,
The experience may be difficult,
And at times a bit rough
But you can say when you’ve had enough
But this is my life, my everyday world
Some days nice and calm,
And other days a swirl,
The one thing to remember when the experience is done,
Help me with my memories,
And the days that I have none.

Two Belfast care homes have achieved high overall performance ratings in a national survey of people living in care homes. Hawthorn House, in Hawthornden Road, scored around 97% while Belmont Care Home, in Tillysburn Park, scored around 93% in the survey for “Your Care Rating”.
The overall performance rating is derived from four core themes: staff and care, home comforts, choice and having a say and the quality of life being experienced by the residents.
Both Hawthorn House and Belmont, which are operated by Four Seasons Health Care, scored the maximum possible of 100% satisfaction for quality of care and 100% for people being happy with their life in the homes.
The independent confidential survey was conducted by leading market research organisation Ipsos MORI.
The two homes also achieved 100% rating for being a safe secure place to live; for people being happy with the care and support provided and for the care team treating residents with kindness, dignity and respect.
In responses to other survey questions 100% of respondents said they can take part in activities and hobbies if they want.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland, who run the homes, said: "Both care teams are delighted that in this independent national survey the residents at Hawthorn House and Belmont Home rated the homes so highly.
"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have had directly from residents, their relatives and care professionals who are able to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality, by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software. This has been recording a 99% overall customer satisfaction rating for Hawthorn House and 98% for Belmont.”
