Dementia care and support

Dementia Care and Support in Devon

 

Specialist dementia care and support focuses on living well with dementia and maximising what is possible at any stage of life. This is a very specialist area in which Southern Healthcare have great passion, experience, and expertise. Providing dementia care across Devon, we implement strategies developed by the highly regarded Dr David Sheard from Dementia Care Matters.

The emphasis is upon ensuring people are happy, meaningfully occupied and positively engaged. Southern Healthcare ensures that a huge emphasis is made upon a combination of loving companionship and a rich variety of meaningful activities. Whether that is exercise, arts/crafts, playing/hearing music, having fun and getting involved with games, or activities outside.

The individual person’s ‘lived’ experience can become much more enriched and normalised and perhaps is removed from what is commonly seen as possible or might be expected.
