Laurels Lodge Care Home has recently taken part in a collaborative project with three other care homes in Aberdeen City to share examples of best practice in dementia care.
Together the four homes held a 'Concert at the Park: Sharing Good Practice in Dementia Care at Duthie Park', which was attended by residents and staff from each home.
They were also joined by Linda Murray from the Care Inspectorate and Fiona Mathers from Scottish Care, who listened to each Home Manager deliver a presentation about their own initiatives that have proven effective and successful in providing dementia care.
Laurels Lodge Home Manager Sheila Gesma talked about their home's enhanced environment and Dementia Care Framework, and a number of people took part in the hands-on FSHC Dementia Experience.
The event proved successful in raising awareness and reaching people in the local community, including local park users who joined the event and were grateful for the information received.
Home Manager Sheila said:
"Our Concert in the Park was an excellent opportunity to showcase what each home does for people living with dementia and was also a worthwhile exercise to learn from other providers about the techniques that have proved successful in their homes."
