Are these findings going to improve specialist dementia care?
UK nursing home Stanfield are pleased to report that findings from the US bring us closer to understanding what causes this disease. But ‘Alzheimer’s mice’ are not a perfect parallel for what happens in human brains. The hope that Alzheimer’s will one day be curable has in recent years faded to a flicker as successive clinical trials ended in failure. But the prospect of a treatment this week grew a little brighter as scientists uncovered a new and unexpected explanation for the development of the disease.
Stanfield, a UK Nursing Home with more information on our Dementia Care
Many of our residents are people experiencing dementia. Our staff are highly trained and experienced in supporting people experiencing dementia and providing appropriate care and understanding.
We believe that we provide an outstanding level of care for people experiencing dementia. However, we also believe that there is always room for improvement. To consistently deliver high quality specialist dementia care, our staff are highly trained and experienced. They are experts in supporting people experiencing dementia and providing appropriate care and understanding. A key in this area of care is our staff knowing each resident as a person, not someone they are employed to care for. The fact that we do not use agency staff is critical in continuously meeting the needs of those we care for with knowledge of the individual.
Two members of staff have achieved their Diploma in Dementia Care. They are responsible for maintaining and raising the level of dementia care the Home provides. They do this through a mixture of formal and informal education and training.
