We understand the pressures involved in caring for someone with dementia or mental health issues. We can include services, such as bathing etc, to help you through your day to day care needs. This can be done on one-off session or by regular days per week or month.
Our staff are trained to care for people with differing levels of need. They all receive core training in Dementia Mental Health issues care, moving and lifting, basic first aid and food hygiene. Most of our staff are trained to at least NVQ level 2 and our shift leaders to NVQ level 3.
Subject to your enquiry, we would arrange to meet you and the person needing care. We would run through a quick assessment process with you both.
This would either be at your home or at Glenside. In any event, we would encourage you to visit Glenside to view our services and ask any additional questions you may have.
If you wanted to proceed with a day care service then we would ask you to complete one of our personal history questionnaires. With this, we will try to build up a picture of the individual and adapt our day care around this. We would try to focus activities to them as well as having communal activities. These are organised by our own staff as well as external entertainers.
We hope our service would allow your loved ones to meet new people and makes friends and at the same time allow you to have some quality time.
We can offer day care services every day.
