|Ellwood Place Residential Home|
“As we become more emotional and less cognitive, its the way you talk to us: not what you say, that we will remember. We know the feeling, we just don’t know the plot. Your smile, your laugh and your touch are what we will connect with. Empathy heals. Just love us as we are. We’re still here in emotion and spirit, if only you could find us” (Christine Bryden 2005)
Ellwood Place is home to 30 residents with a diagnosis of Dementia. Our residents enjoy a homely atmosphere, in which they are encouraged and supported to make a meaningful contribution to their shared community, however small. We focus on what a resident can do, aiming to maintain physical well being by encouraging mobility and independence with gentle activities and exercise. The home is furnished with memorabilia to promote recognition and memory recall and many of our scheduled activities take this into consideration. We use doll/bear therapy . All our staff receive recognised training in dementia awareness and behaviours that challenge, so that they can promote a sense of positive wellbeing, inclusion and acceptance, whilst treating each individual in a person centred way.
Our fees for dementia care start from £850 per week. To enquire about current availability call Tara Burgess on 01293 594206 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
