Dementia Care

Etive House Care Home is proud to provide dementia care in Argyll & Bute and for those who are living with dementia, we have created a safe, caring, and welcoming environment for them to live in. Our Dementia Care team has all undergone thorough, specialist dementia care training, helping them to assist with all aspects and levels of memory impairment, ensuring that each individual is treated with the utmost care and respect.

Our Activity Coordinators always prioritise making sure that our residents get the very best level of care and support, especially when it comes to fulfilling their social, mental, and emotional needs. We always collaborate with our dementia residents and their loved ones to identify activities and therapies that are appropriate for their specific needs and to help them thrive. Daily planned activities improve social and mental stimulation and interaction, as well as relieve any frustrations and tensions associated with dementia.

Dementia Care FAQs

We get to know their routines, interests, and preferences which we then ensure are included in their customised care plans. We adopt a person-centred approach to care and it is our goal to help residents retain their independence and dignity whilst providing support whenever they need us.

We invest in the training and development of our staff and when it comes to our dementia care team, they undergo training as necessary to ensure they are kept informed with the latest in dementia research.
