Dementia isn’t just hard for the person living with it, it’s hard for their family and friends, too, which is why Eagles Mount is passionate about ensuring those who live with dementia – and their loved ones – are given everything they need to feel supported through their journey.
Delivering compassionate dementia care in Poole, Eagles Mount offers outstanding facilities, fantastic care staff, skilled nursing staff, and a well-being programme that ensures those with dementia enjoy life in a fantastic setting.
Living with dementia
Just because someone lives with dementia doesn’t mean their life has to drastically change. They should still be able to enjoy food, days out in the local area, and benefit from socialising with other people.
The key to ensuring the people who live with us enjoy their lifestyle here at Eagles Mount is through getting to know them! All of our care staff develop friendships with the people who live here, so we truly get to know their habits, likes and dislikes, and personality traits.
Social interaction is encouraged, and we have a fantastic activities programme that keeps minds busy and engaged. Friendships are made within the home, and the people who live with us get to experience days out in the local areas that trigger memories or provide them with a sense of joy.
Delivering dementia care in Poole
We ensure that every person who comes to live at our residential and dementia care home in Poole benefits from their own unique care plan. With the assistance of family, medical professionals and the individual themselves, we ensure their preferences and needs are met, promoting a greater sense of positive well-being.
Our care home has been designed to facilitate the day to day lives of those living with dementia. As a dementia care home that promotes a sense of independence, we have designed our facilities so memories and associations are triggered, reducing confusion and promoting familiarity.
Often those living with dementia feel more connected to the life they led in the past. Within the communal areas of our Poole care home, we have items that enable the people who live with us to live within those memories, which also helps to create a sense of calm and familiarity.
Developing close relationships with the people who live with us means we can tell when their dementia has progressed. Working closely with their doctor and loved ones, we’ll adapt their care plan when necessary, ensuring they receive the right care for their needs.
