Everyone’s experience of living with dementia is unique. We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment and assist those requiring support to live their best life.
Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a collection of symptoms and diseases that affect the brain. There are about 120 types of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, lewy body dementia and frontotemporal dementia.
Dementia affects a person’s thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. The cognitive functions affected can include memory, language, understanding information, movement, judgement and attention.
Everyone’s experience of living with dementia is unique and dementia does not define the person. However, it does require special understanding and support.
Eldercare’s memory support units are staffed with skilled and caring people.
Championed by our Dementia Educator, our staff are specially trained to take a person-first approach that looks beyond the disease and respects the life experience, choices, and individuality of each resident.
