RESIDENTIAL & DEMENTIA CARE
Dementia-related conditions are becoming more prevalent in society today.
But that doesn’t mean people who have them shouldn’t continue living a full and active life.
Our highly qualified staff ensure each individual is given the personalised care and attention they need. While those needs vary, our fundamental services always remains consistent:
We create a home-like feel where people are helped to recall happier times with familiar decorations in their rooms and memory boxes filled with their personal items to rummage in.
We adapt environments to meet our people’s needs. This includes special crockery, tableware and kitchens, alongside enclosed sensory gardens with low risk walkways.
We provide care that supports people’s freedom of choice and develops their life-skills and self-esteem, helping maintain and develop their independents.
We ensure individuals feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia rather than just ‘exist’ with it.
24 hour care
Key to the success of Burlingham House is the top quality staff providing 24-hour care to our people.
Everyone from management to carers, administrative to domestic staff is given a comprehensive training programme which is constantly evolving and improving.
Our staff also attend refresher courses on a regular basis as we believe updated training results in a better quality of care and lifestyle for the people we support.
Activities and Therapies
The activity programmes provided by our care teams are tailored to meet our people’s needs and capabilities – and to be thoroughly enjoyed!
These range from gardening to baking, outings to gentle exercise and pet care to life skills.
Along with our dedicated activities co-ordinator we also have external companies come into Burlingham House on a regular basis to ensure residents receive a wide range of entertainment.
