Essex Dementia Care
The effects of living with dementia can affect people in very different ways – symptoms can change and alter in their prominence quickly, and over time as this condition develops. At Cherry Wood Grange, our Essex dementia care home is one of compassion, kindness, and sensitivity, where residents are supported to live meaningful lives full of happiness, acceptance and contentment – no matter what type of dementia they live with, or the symptoms they’re experiencing at the time.
We take the time to understand more about each resident’s medical and well-being needs, as well as likes and dislikes, and how their dementia affects them. This allows our loving team members to deliver the very best care and support. We pride ourselves on being one of the leading care homes in Essex for dementia, offering unwavering support to both residents and their families and friends.
Life at our Chelmsford Dementia Care Home
At Cherry Wood Grange, we cherish and nurture each resident’s individuality, forming close bonds by reading body language and noticing changes so we have an accurate insight into how they’re feeling. We tailor our care to be both flexible and responsive, to support happiness and independence.
We provide a variety of activities and dining options for residents in our Essex dementia care. We specifically tailor options to our residents’ needs so we can continue to support them, ensuring they feel valued and content. We know how important surroundings are for our residents living with dementia, so we ensure the environment is designed to support the well-being of our residents first and foremost. With beautiful and serene places to relax, like our sensory gardens, and shared spaces where our residents can socialise and engage with others, our Essex dementia care focuses on enhancing well-being and creating calm and relaxing surroundings.
During mealtimes, our care team members join residents to provide support and encouragement if needed. Meals are shown to residents which enables them to choose the option that looks the most appealing to them. As a way of promoting independence, specialist tableware and cutlery are available for your loved ones, tailored to each individual’s needs.
Our Essex dementia care home has a specially designed dementia suite that allows residents to interact with a street-lined corridor, which features a bus stop and marketplace, as well as rummage boxes, allowing them to enjoy each day and feel content.
Essex Dementia Care – Family Support
We know that families and friends of residents require support too, as well as carers within our local community. Our compassionate and caring approach extends outside our dementia care homes in Essex to provide a listening ear, or just to have a chat, as we understand the effects that a loved one’s condition can have on close relatives. We’re always here to talk to you when you need it most and host regular events to help families to get a better understanding of dementia. Our dementia care family support is part of a whole package of features – this is what makes us one of the best Dementia care homes in Essex.
