What Activities Are Good for Care Home Residents?
When your loved one is in a care home, it’s important that they’re looked after and given all the medical attention they need. But on top of that, they need to keep their bodies active and their brain focused. Days can become long and boredom may set in. Regular activities are a great thing to look forward to and can provide residents with a lot of entertainment.
The importance of creating calm and reassurance in a dementia care environment
Moving a loved one into residential care is a difficult and complex decision, especially if your family member is living with dementia. Dementia can affect how we respond to everyday things and it can be hard to settle and feel at home in a care environment if we don’t feel calm, reassured and safe. As well as taking care of a person’s physical needs, we understand that it is equally as vital to look after our residents’ emotional needs and mental health.
