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 of a fulfilled life for older adults with conditions such as dementia enables our care teams to go above and beyond. For our residents needing dementia care, we create an inclusive community where everyone interacts freely. Our open-plan dining and lounge areas foster engagement and ensure no one is excluded. This design allows residents the freedom of movement and personal space, making it easier for our staff to provide attentive care. Everyone in our home moves with purpose, contributing to a supportive and dynamic environment.

What is Dementia Care? 

Dementia is a neurological condition that affects a person’s mental capabilities in a number of ways, from communication and critical thinking to memory loss. With the right care and attention, those living with dementia can continue to live their life to the fullest, continuing with their favourite activities. Our unique building nestled in Haddington has been purposefully built to provide comprehensive dementia care.

At our dementia care home in Haddington, we strive to maintain a resident’s sense of self and independence for as long as possible. Here at Haddington Care Home, we recognise that no two individuals living with dementia are the same and while some may only require modest assistance in managing their daily lives, others may require much more support as the condition progresses.

Dementia Care in East Lothian

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, pet therapy, sensory therapy as well as visiting the local community to attend dementia cafés with local people. 

At Haddington Care Home, our dementia staff receives specialist dementia care training, which provides the baseline knowledge and skills required, with an emphasis on understanding, awareness and positive interactions. We work hard to maximise the potential of each resident enabling them to lead a fulfilling and comfortable life. Dementia can take its toll on a person, especially those closest to them, therefore respite care is offered to help minimise the strain for those caring for a loved one at home.

Dementia Care FAQs

Prior to moving into Haddington Care Home, we arrange for a consultation with our Home Manager, the prospective resident and their loved ones to ensure we can meet their individual needs. We get to understand their routines, interests, and preferences to include this in their personalised care plans. We proudly take a person-centred approach to care and it is our goal to help residents keep their independence and dignity whilst providing support whenever they need it.

We invest in the training and development of our staff and when it comes to our dementia care team, they undergo the necessary training to ensure they are kept up to date with the latest in dementia care and support. Our teams have the experience and knowledge to provide effective care to our residents with dementia, including support with activities, therapies, communication, mobility, medication management, and personal care.


At Haddington Care Home, we provide a varied activities programme for residents which includes both group and 1:1 activities and therapies. For example, our arts & crafts sessions are held regularly and we also provide music therapy, reminiscence activities, and more. The activities and therapies we offer are designed to support the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of our residents, including individuals living with dementia.
