Our enthusiastic and specialised staff led by Kim Lambden, look after those residents with dementia. Kim said that the passion and commitment shown by Alison at her interview made her feel she wanted to be part of this home. Her team are highly qualified in dementia care, and many worked their induction period in the residential homes with those residents who were transferring to Hill House, to ensure a smooth transition in what can be an unsettling time for the old people.
The Residents receive full 24 hour nursing care. Families have monthly meetings with the dementia manager to discuss any concerns they may have, and about any changes in care that are deemed necessary. They are fully consulted in the decision making process.
Rooms have been designed to reduce the risk of falls and injury and a homely and familiar environment helps the residents to feel relaxed and safe. A safe courtyard garden will encourage residents to enjoy being outside as much as the weather allows.
Pictures and memorabilia have been chosen to encourage reminiscence as well as creating a comfortable and non-institutional feel to the surroundings.
