Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care
In recognition of the unique needs of people with dementia, we have
• created a home-like feel
• providing specialised care
• promoting self-esteem
• encouraging independence
• supporting life-skills and individuality
• enabling freedom of choice
• providing a comfortable and safe environment where someone can live with their dementia and not just exist
Everyone in the care team recoganises, supports and celebrates each person's individuality. They receive training on dementia care programmes and have regular refresher courses thereafter.
Regular meetings and social gatherings are organised for families and friends and form an essential support network.
As a carer you want to relax, knowing that your relative, friend or client is in a safe, welcoming environment with personalised care and support tailored to their needs. A short stay at Five Gables for care or nursing can give people the opportunity to experience a short break among friendly, welcoming staff and it's also a chance to meet with other people we support as well.
Staff at Five Gables are happy to arrange a trial stay to allow the individual to see if the home is the right choice for them as their new permanent home.
We also offer short breaks in dedicated facilities and complex needs including health and medical needs. We can offer just one night or a longer short break stay, and work closely with families and professionals to ensure continuity in our approach and the provision of support.
Spend a day and enjoy all our facilities and take part in our daily activities for a nominal fee.
