Our Approach Towards Dementia Care
We are totally committed to developing meaningful relationships with people and maintaining a real ‘sense of family’ with a strong emphasis on our Devon care homes feeling like home, and not just places of care. Our homes have kind staff, who are genuinely loving and very skilled.
These features require meaningful connection, positive listening and consistency between the spoken word, actual practice and body language, and are essential for such positive engagement.
For a number of years, our care homes have been engaged with some of the leading thinkers of dementia care innovation, including key elements of practical psychology, principles of leadership and the building of relationships that have enabled us to strive for excellence in what we do. Southern Healthcare is incredibly proud to be part of the movement that is redefining the boundaries of what is possible in dementia care and support.
