Dementia Care

Dementia Care

Every Sunrise care home features a dedicated, specialised dementia care area that is devoted entirely to residents who are living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. We call it our ‘Reminiscence’ neighbourhood.

It’s the same high quality, individualised care that you’ll find in the assisted living neighbourhoods of our care homes – but with a specialised focus on caring for people who are living with the effects of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

Dedicated, Trained Staff

You’ll also find dedicated, compassionate, caring staff who are trained in helping our residents and their family members to live with both the good and bad days that go hand-in-hand with memory loss.

Our dementia care team is trained to value each individual and to recognize their different preferences and needs. We know that memory loss affects every resident differently. That’s why we focus on understanding each individual resident in order to provide comfort and security in a familiar environment.

Benefit from Our Experience

At Sunrise we recognise that families and friends wish to be involved with the care of their loved one. Our support groups work hand in hand with you to offer education, guidance, advice and information. We fully understand the emotional turmoil, the worries and the challenges that a diagnosis of dementia can bring. So, we’re more than happy to share our experience and our insights with you.

A Place for Living

Our Reminiscence neighbourhood – just like the rest of our care home - is designed to provide comfort, security and life enrichment in a homelike environment.

It’s a safe, reassuring and relaxing place, where residents take part in everything from sing-a-longs, to discussion groups or listening to music. It’s also a place where family members can feel comfortable visiting their loved ones.

Life Enrichment & Activities

Life enrichment is core to the quality of life delivered through our activities programme. We recognise the importance of cognitive stimulation and provide a range of activities from facilitated brain training sessions to creative projects that help improve our residents' sense of wellbeing.

Every activity that we plan is designed for adults and promotes in residents a feeling of success and purpose by taking part. Music therapy is an essential part of the day.
