You may have seen recent stories on BBC News and Radio Shropshire focussing on dementia and what actions can be taken to support this. Not to mention recent Oscar coverage which has also brought to light this important issue with the release of new film ‘Still Alice’ which dares us to consider the complex challenges that people living with dementia face.
BBC News have been investigating how the University of Stirling champions the importance of dementia care and how homes can be made dementia friendly through having the right resources, knowledge and confidence.
At Morris Care, we feel that it’s so important that this topic has been brought to light and it’s great that we’re one step ahead of the game! We have worked with the University of Stirling to ensure we create a real home from home for our dementia residents.
Each and every aspect of our dementia care homes is sympathetically considered to meet our residents’ individual needs and to ensure that they feel reassured and comfortable in their space.
All the fixtures and fittings from soft furnishings to non-reflective glass in pictures, to colour coded doors and walkways through to specialist bathrooms and bedrooms are designed to exacting standards.
It’s great to see that the importance of quality care for people with dementia is finally being recognised, and at Morris Care we are proud that we provide a safe and stimulating environment for residents, ensuring they feel safe, secure and loved.
