Dementia Care

We are proud to offer Dementia Care at Haddington Care Home, where the care is tailored to people living with dementia. Our professional and experienced team is all nurse led within the dementia community and everyone has all undertaken professional and specialised training in dealing with various stages and aspects of Dementia, helping new residents and current residents to feel comfortable in their surroundings. 

Fully understanding the benefits living a fulfilled life can have on older people living with conditions such as dementia allows our care teams to go above and beyond. We understand this can be a difficult time in many people’s lives, therefore collaborating with dementia residents and their loved ones is something we do to identify activities and therapies that are appropriate for their specific needs including reminiscence activities, coffee mornings, sensory therapy as well as visiting the local community to attend dementia cafés with local people. For our residents with dementia care, we’re all in one big unit, with open plan dining and a lounge area, in which benefits our residents due to the freedom of movement they have along with personal space. It’s also easier for our staff to manage, everyone walks with purpose in our home.
