What is a Dementia Care Home? 

Dementia care homes provide care and support to those living with dementia, from assisting with personal care and medication management to helping with mobility and communication. For someone living with low-level dementia, a residential dementia care home may be suitable, whereas a nursing dementia care home is more appropriate for those at a more advanced stage.

Dementia is a condition that typically affects a person’s cognitive abilities, such as thinking, speaking and remembering. During the early to mid stages, symptoms of dementia may be forgetting appointments and dates or misplacing items. Dementia is a progressive condition meaning in some cases, symptoms may worsen. Symptoms of a more advanced stage of dementia may be struggling in social situations or with everyday tasks such as maintaining a household.

As dementia can have varying symptoms and severity, the level and type of care that is required is very much dependent on the person living with it. There are various options that can be considered when looking for a dementia care home, such as a residential care home or a nursing home. Both environments are highly supportive, where care and support are given around-the-clock by staff who are trained to assist with the varying levels of dementia.

Supporting our Residents with Dementia at Bothwell Castle

At Bothwell Castle Care Home, we are proud to offer specialist dementia care by a team of professionals who have the experience and knowledge to identify the level of support that is required for our residents living with dementia. Our approach to all of our care services is to deliver high-quality, person-centred care around-the-clock, and our care teams use bespoke care plans, up-to-date methods and equipment to help them achieve it. Each of our residents has their own fully-furnished bedroom with ensuite WC, which we invite residents to personalise with belongings, ensuring a familiar, home-from-home feel.

Our dementia care is provided in a thoughtfully designed environment, where aspects such as the use of space, materials and lighting have all been carefully chosen for their effects on those living with dementia. We believe in providing more than just medical care, but ensuring that our resident’s wellbeing needs are holistically cared for. We have a wide range of facilities onsite at Bothwell Castle Care Home, such as a cinema room, hair salon and private gardens, and we encourage all residents to make use of these facilities. Our activities team also go to great lengths to put together an activities programme that is inclusive for all and includes opportunities to continue hobbies, pursue interests and meet new people. 

We understand how challenging it can be to find a care home or service that meets your or a loved one’s individual needs. At Bothwell Castle Care Home, we realise that each resident we welcome into our home is unique in their requirements, interests and hobbies. That’s why, our team is committed to ensuring that no matter what care type our residents require, or what they’re interested in, they receive a person-centred experience. This starts with an initial consultation with our Home Manager or member of the senior care team, whereby we offer our expert guidance to help determine what the best course of action is for you and your loved ones.
