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 have 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.

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a condition that affects several cognitive functions, including speech and memory. With the correct care and support services, people living with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest, while our incredible teams of highly skilled medical professionals can help them maintain their sense of self and independence for as long as possible.

Etive House Care Home recognises that no two people with dementia are alike and that while some may only require modest support with daily activities, others may require significantly more. Our dementia care is personalised to each individual, and our care home and teams provide the opportunity for residents to live in a home with a positive and comfortable atmosphere.

We make every effort to provide both medical and personal care that fosters independent living and helps each person to attain their greatest potential.

We want all of our residents to feel comfortable with us and as though Etive House Care Home is their very own home. 

How Do You Know When it’s the Right Time to Receive Dementia Care?

Dementia can bring a variety of challenges to those who live with it, as well as their family carer or those who care for them. Dementia is a progressive syndrome, which means that the person with dementia will require more support and care as time goes on. If a person living with dementia has progressed to the point that they might require a slightly higher level of care and support than can be provided at home, they will need care from a care home with the right team. We are proud to be regulated by the Scottish Care Inspectorate, an independent regulator that inspects services within the social and care sector to ensure they are operating at a high standard.

It is important to us that we provide care and support not only to our residents but their friends and families too. We are here to offer advice and guidance to assist those seeking care make an informed decision as to whether we can offer the right care for you, and our Home Manager and care experts welcome the opportunity to help. Once a resident at Etive House Care Home, with the support of family and loved ones, the staff at can help to create an authentic picture of a resident’s life, ensuring that both medical and wellness care is considered and expertly handled. Working closely with family and loved ones allows us to learn more about them, and therefore provide them with a high standard of personalised care.

When it comes to attending a doctor’s appointment, we always encourage our residents to be as independent as possible. They can either choose to attend their GP session alone or be accompanied by a friendly and trusted member of our team.

Opticians Visits

If any of our residents are suffering from any eye-related concerns, they can rest assured that they’ll always have access to an optician while staying with us at Etive House Care Home. Any treatment required might come at an additional cost, so it’s always worth checking before any further payments are made.

Dental Care

We recognise just how important dental care, health and hygiene can be to an individual, especially as we get older. Those who need dental care or a specific oral treatment can book an appointment with a Dentist while staying with us.


Physiotherapy can be organised for those of our residents who are suffering from joint or muscular pain. Whether you want a one-off session to fix an individual targeted area, or you’d prefer to continue on a specific course for a series of weeks, you can talk with a member of a team to discover what the best course of action is for you. 


Residents who suffer from foot-related concerns can schedule a visit from a Chiropodist to treat any problems they might have. This will incur an extra cost, however, and is not included within the overall fee of staying with us at Etive House Care Home.
