Dementia Care

Our residential care home provides dementia care in Leicestershire in an environment that has been designed to be safe, caring, and welcoming. At The Ashton Care Home, all members of our dementia care team have received extensive, specialised training in dealing with all elements of memory impairment. We also take a holistic and person centred approach to care, ensuring that each and every resident is provided with the highest level of care and respect.

Our management team and activity coordinators go above and beyond, collaborating with dementia care residents and their loved ones to identify activities and therapies that are appropriate for their specific needs and to create a dementia care plan for each individual. Through daily planned activities, social and mental stimulation and interaction are improved and any frustrations and tensions associated with dementia are relieved. 

Providing Dementia Care in Leicestershire

Our staff have undertaken extensive dementia care training and we take pride in offering the greatest level of care and respect to each resident. We work hard to support people and provide a dementia care service that allows each person to reach their full potential and live a happy and comfortable life. Social and mental stimulation and interaction are improved, and any frustrations and tensions associated with dementia are addressed, thanks to regularly planned activities.

We are proud to provide dementia care in Leicestershire and our care home has been created with carefully designed spaces and knowledge of the need for comfort and familiarity, as well as practicalities such as en-suite wet rooms. We encourage residents to bring their belongings from their own homes to make their personal space their own.  

We also provide much-needed support for the family members of our residents as the transition is as much a change for them as it is for their loved one.

Dementia Care FAQs

Before residents join us at The Ashton Care Home, we facilitate consultations with our Home Manager, prospective residents, and their loved ones. This ensures a thorough understanding of individual needs, routines, interests, and preferences, all of which are integrated into personalised care plans. Our commitment to a person-centered approach aims to preserve residents’ independence and dignity while assuring them of our continuous support.

We prioritise the training and development of all of our staff, including our dementia care team. They receive ongoing training to stay updated on the latest in dementia care and support. Our teams are equipped with the expertise to deliver effective care, covering activities, therapies, communication strategies, mobility assistance, medication management, and personal care for residents with dementia.

The Ashton Care Home offers a diverse activities programme for all residents, including both group and one-on-one sessions. Regular arts & crafts sessions, music therapy, and reminiscence activities are just a few examples. These activities and therapies are carefully chosen to enhance the physical, cognitive, and social wellbeing of all residents, including those living with dementia.
