Dementia Joy at Deepdene

Residents at Deepdene Care Centre have been enjoying the newly designed Dementia Unit.

Both residents and staff have enjoyed using the new equipment and surroundings each day to live a meaningful and positive life.

New concepts for the unit include, an indoor garden area, complete with water feature and bird song, an art and craft station and a 1950’s style living room, complete with 1950’s TV and radio; and a new look dining room.

Residents also benefit from the use of dolls and ‘fiddle’ items which help keep busy minds and fingers active.

The aim is to introduce meaningful and positive interaction between residents and staff, giving residents a purpose, with each activity being adapted to individual likes and needs.

There has been a significant decrease in the number of distressed behaviour in residents since the new activity areas have been introduced. Although these concepts do not altogether stop these behaviours, they do help staff to offer distraction techniques to help assist with residents who may becoming distressed.

Dementia training has also started to be rolled out to all staff so they have an understanding to what a meaning and purposeful activity is and increase their understanding of what Dementia is.
