Support for you and your loved one living with dementia is crucial. Stanfield Nursing Home, located in Worcester, has been providing nursing care for over 32 years. We are very familiar with the challenges people face with a dementia diagnosis.
Whether you are looking for a local care home or you are considering staying with us, we’re here to support and guide you throughout.
Dementia Support at Stanfield Nursing Home
Care provided at Stanfield takes many forms, such as general nursing care, palliative care, or dementia care. As a result, we understand how important specialist dementia care is for those who are experiencing the disease.
We are one of Worcestershire’s leading care homes providing support for dementia. We have a team of highly trained dementia care specialists. This means we can provide the very best support for dementia and help your loved one in as many ways as possible.
Knowing what to do when a loved one is diagnosed with dementia can be difficult at first. These things don’t usually happen on a planned basis. Additionally, there may be a limited amount of time to find somewhere for your loved one to stay and be cared for. This situation can leave you experiencing lots of emotions all at once. Stress, sadness, guilt, helplessness.
We’ve put together a few things to consider when looking for dementia support.
Making Sure Our Care Home Is Right For You
When people are considering nursing home admissions, we want to make sure that our nursing home is right for you and for us.
Stanfield Nursing Home is a family. Therefore, if we bring somebody new into the home, they’re joining our family. This is something we have to bear in mind in all admissions.
Your family is joining our family so it’s got to be right.
Visiting Stanfield Nursing Home
You can come by and visit Stanfield at any time to assess whether we’re the right place for you.
First, we will show you around the nursing home. We have permission from some families to go into certain rooms so that we can show you what our physical accommodation is like. Stanfield offers a wide range of environments. For example, people can choose to join in daily activities with others in our Oak Lounge or relax in our dementia sensory garden.
Then, we sit down with you and your family to discuss what it is you want for your loved one at this time. During this, we will discuss the assessment in a very open and caring way and arrive at the very best solution.
After visiting Stanfield Nursing Home you may go away and think of a few things you were not able to discuss at the time. Don’t be afraid to come back and have another look.
Alternatively, we can go and meet you and your family to undertake a complete assessment at home.
