This is an important part of our person-centred care.

See our Holly Lodge activities here and our Cedar Lodge activities here.

Do dementia patients need a care home or a nursing home?

Depends on what their specific reason for needing care is. Aside from the dementia aspect, if they have a clinical need such as pressure sore, catheters, tube feeding or some specialist medication, e.g., for diabetes, then typically they would need a nursing home. If their need only relates to help with daily tasks such as feeding, washing and dressing, then they would typically need a residential home.

We encourage discussing this further with our team of care specialists that can guide you towards the best and specific decision for you by calling 0333 305 1785 or filling our form via our contact page.

What are signs that dementia is getting worse?

Varies from person to person. A person can exhibit certain characteristics such as simple forgetfulness for many years before that becomes more serious, such as forgetting appointments or directions or frequently losing things. There are different stages to dementia and each stage typically exhibits subtle changes where signs and symptoms become more obvious.
