We have developed our own commitment and approach to delivering specialist, person-centred dementia care, called PETALS which stands for;
The individual and their loved ones are at the heart of the care we provide. We never forget the person behind the diagnosis.
People living with dementia can and do achieve great things. We work with the individual to support them to achieve their goals, and remain as independent as possible.
It can be hard for someone living with dementia to accept that they need support. Our specialist dementia care teams work hard to earn the trust of those living with dementia, so that they can support them to live well with their condition.
A dementia diagnosis does not remove a person’s interests and passions in life. Person-centred dementia care helps individuals to retain treasured hobbies and experience the joy of discovering new interests.
We support and celebrate the whole person and all of their life experiences, not just the dementia patient we can see today.
Keeping physically, mentally and socially active has been shown to reduce a person’s risk of dementia, or the development of their dementia symptoms. We support people to stay connected, active and engaged, so that they can live the life they choose.
