What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a condition that affects an older person’s mental functions in various ways, often providing challenges in speech, memory loss and behaviour. With the appropriate support and care from an experienced team, individuals living with dementia can continue to lead fulfilling lives.

At our dementia care home in Uddingston, we understand that every person’s needs are unique. Some may require only minimal support, while others may need more comprehensive assistance depending on the stage of dementia. In caring for our residents, we prioritise a person-centered approach, with the goal of helping them maintain their independence and a sense of self for as long as possible.
