At Silver Birch have expert staff, specially designed rooms and facilities to take care of senior citizens with dementia.

We take the time to get to know you and your loved ones, putting each resident’s needs, desires and choices at the heart of the care we provide.

Dementia is an umbrella term for a number of neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s. The symptoms are caused by physical changes to the brain and are unique to the individual.

Dementia can be an emotional journey and moving into full-time care may be a difficult decision for the resident and their family. You must be absolutely confident that the care home you choose has the right facilities, skills and approach to support people whose lives are changed by dementia.

In the early stages of dementia, many people are able to enjoy life in the same way as before their diagnosis. But as symptoms get worse, the person may feel anxious, stressed and scared at not being able to remember things, follow conversations or concentrate. It is important to support the person to maintain skills, abilities, and an active social life. This can also help how they feel about themselves.

  • We have a dedicated floor for residents with dementia with specially designed rooms and facilities created by industry specialists and architect that help people living with dementia to live as independent and stress-free a life as possible.
  • Our design team have created our dementia floor which balance colour schemes, wayfinding and points of interest to create a safe, homely and easily understood environment.
  • We work with each new resident and their family to make the transition into the home as easy as possible.
  • Our teams take a person-centred approach to care planning that puts you and your personal choices at the heart of the care and support we provide.
  • Nutritional care: the process of eating and drinking can become difficult for people living with dementia, but our team is on hand and fully trained to ensure that loved ones will be getting the nutrition they need.
