At UKI Care Home, we understand that choosing a care home for your loved one can be stressful for everyone involved. It’s why we offer all-round support to make the transition easier.
Living with dementia can become more difficult over time. As the dementia progresses, you may find it increasingly hard to manage by yourself or to continue to ensure the best quality of life at home, and there may come a time when moving into a care home is the best way forward.
Many people worry that moving into a care home will mean losing their independence or giving up the things they love doing. But at UKI Care Home we help you to remain as active as possible and ensure you continue to enjoy a happy, fulfilled life.
Finding the home that is right for you and your needs is important.
We have been caring for people living with dementia in our home since we opened and it is this experience that helps us to offer the best possible care and quality of life.
A warm welcome
We want you to be as involved in your loved one’s care as you wish to be. We always welcome visits from friends and family that are respectful of residents and their needs, and provide 24/7 telephone access.
What’s more, if you want to continue playing a part in any aspect of your loved one’s routine, you’re welcome to. But if you’d prefer to leave that side of things to us, you are most welcome.
Getting to know your loved one
Every person we care for is an individual, with their own personality, interests and preferences, so we make our care flexible to each person’s needs.
We start getting to know each person as soon as we know they’ll be joining us. We work with them and their family to learn in depth about what matters to them, what they enjoy doing and eating, where they have lived, what jobs they’ve done, where their favourite places are.
We immerse ourselves in their world so that we can see the person behind the diagnosis, and find as many ways as possible for them to feel valued and happy.
