Dementia is a rather taboo subject that is commonly ignored or played down by seniors and their families, which can often cause more harm than good.
The best approach is to recognise and accept the growing needs of your loved one and be proactive in finding the best care for both their health and their well-being.
When it comes to quality dementia care on the Gold Coast, our dementia care building Raffles has it all.
Raffles caters for all stages of dementia with registered nurses onsite 24/7. It is very secure environment and boasts a beautiful outlook of adjoining parklands.
Our dementia care service includes daily lifestyle activities that are specifically formulated to keep the mind active, which is important, and there are also sensory herb gardens.
Staff also have regular one-on-one time with each individual to provide more dedicated attention and to help stimulate those who don’t like participating in larger group activities.
Part of the one-on-one time sees a carer go through “memory boxes”, which are filled with dates and names that prompt your loved one to remember significant milestones and people in their life, essentially taking them on a trip down memory lane.
Above all, our key point of difference is the level of skills, knowledge and experience our registered nurses have.
Each of our staff members have over 10 years’ experience in dementia care and they also update their knowledge and qualifications every two months with regular in-house training to ensure for nothing less than the best care and service for your loved one.
Further to this, our staff rosters maintain a consistent routine so that your loved one can feel comfortable and secure with familiar voices and familiar faces all through the week.
For peace of mind, you need a facility where the care staff are dedicated to providing exceptional care, with some of the most innovative aged care therapies and services.
