George Brooker House is a person-centred home where the wellbeing of our residents is paramount. Our professionally trained staff are specialists in dementia care; they recognise the symptoms of dementia and understand how to deal with the condition. We provide a nurturing environment where our residents are cared for with dignity and respect. Staff compassionately attend our residents through the good and bad days of memory loss. The dementia care team appreciate the varying needs of each individual; our dementia care plans are personalised for each resident.
"Thank you for looking after my mum, Louisa, I really appreciated it. She couldn’t have had better care."
~ Danny and Family
Our residents with dementia are able to participate in mainstream activities at the home, particularly those involving music and art - the benefits of which are well researched and documented. We also use a whole host of proven techniques to encourage interaction, including reminiscence sessions and memorabilia cabinets with gentle reminders of yesteryear.
We implemented many special features around the home for our residents comfort, particularly those with dementia. Each bedroom corridor has an individual colour theme to help residents navigate the home. We have also placed personal memory boxes by every bedroom door to help with recognition. All of our toilets and bathrooms have red doorframes to help residents identify these areas.
