In our homes, residents living with dementia can continue to enjoy life.
From building relationships to understanding how living with dementia feels, we support residents to feel relaxed, secure and happy in their new home.
Life with Dementia
When a person lives with dementia some things might change, but not everything has to. That’s why, instead of focusing on the things a person can no longer do, we support them to continue to do the things that bring them happiness.
At Four Seasons Health Care Group, we believe that everyone living with dementia in our care homes should enjoy life, have something to look forward to every day and be treated with dignity and respect. Although dementia is a complex and progressive condition, we aim to ensure that everyone in our care is supported and enabled to look forward to every day with us and their well-being is maintained through the simple but essential pleasures of good food and company in a warm and homely environment.
The starting point to helping our residents live well with dementia is recognising that they are unique individuals, and that they should not be defined by their diagnosis, but valued as members of our community. By taking the time to get to know our residents and finding out about their life history, we can talk about the things that matter to them. By holding their hand and actively listening, we feel we can truly make a difference.
We offer a range of care, from residential dementia support for people who need a little help with daily tasks, such as washing, dressing and taking medication, to nursing dementia care for those with long-term medical conditions or physical disabilities. We’ll create a personalised care plan for each individual, while our nursing teams are supported by a local GP and hospital consultant, making sure our residents receive the best care.
Our approach to dementia care
Sometimes caring for a person living with dementia can be challenging. That is why our dementia care training is aimed at all team members so that we can respond to and care for our residents in the best possible way.
We also realise that surroundings have a big impact on well-being and can make life easier for people living with dementia. Many of our homes have dementia-friendly living environments, such as colour-coded routes to help people get around, reminiscence rooms to spark memories and sensory gardens that stimulate using sight, sounds and fragrances.

Before Dad moved here he was often tired and you couldn't have much of a conversation with him. Since moving here they looked at all his medication and asked us lots of questions about what he's like, and what he does in his spare time. Dad now takes fewer medicines and does more of what he likes to do - like singing along to swing music. We enjoy our visits more now, he seems to be much happier.
