Dementia Care

Dementia Friendly Aged Care

As dementia progresses, we’re here to care for your loved one in a dignified and respectful way.

Living well with dementia

Each person diagnosed with dementia will experience the illness differently. That’s why we tailor care to your loved one’s unique needs.

Dementia usually causes memory loss. If the person you care for is moving into a care home, familiar furniture, belongings and music can help them feel settled.

We’ll work with you to get it right for them.

We’re committed to quality dementia care

Moving to residential care can be a difficult decision to make, but there are positives:

  • Team of professionals giving the best support
  • Knowing the one you love is in a safe place
  • Stimulating activities to build self-esteem
  • Social interaction with other residents
  • 24-hour support from care staff
  • Family can take a break from caring responsibilities.

Rest assured, at Goodwin our well-trained, compassionate team are exceptional at looking after people with dementia.

Our Approach

Staff training

Our staff are chosen for their caring nature and dedication to working with people with dementia.

They receive on-going training to make sure they are well-informed and understand what it might be like to live with dementia.

We go the extra mile to build strong and supportive relationships. Not just with your loved one, but with you too.

Dementia friendly environments

Home surroundings can impact quality of life. Residents might feel lost, confused or even scared if they can’t find ‘home’.  When your loved one is trying to make sense of the world, we find ways to reassure them.

  • Memory boxes outside their rooms.
  • Carers understanding their life story.
  • Other ways to communicate. Not always talking.
  • Music collections special to them.

Person-centred care

Treating the person as a valued individual who is more than their diagnosis of dementia.

We go as far as we can to give your loved one as much control as possible. Their personal needs, desires and choices are at the centre of everything we do.
