Community

Milton Court Dementia Care is specifically designed to meet the special needs of those with dementia. Our dementia care is provided within our home in two dedicated wings, Turquoise and Amber wings.

Small dementia unit wings give us the opportunity to know our residents and families.

A smaller setting will provide a higher staff to resident ratio. Staff can notice any changes that need attention and can act on it right away. Research shows that people with dementia respond positively to surroundings that are relaxed, homely, easy to navigate and spacious. For these reasons, our Turquoise and Amber wings are purposely designed to be on a small scale with a home-like environment. Because of the small, intimate atmosphere, it is easier to decorate the room – linking the decor to the memory of residents.

We encourage residents to carry out small tasks throughout the day, such as, cleaning, hanging out washing, folding clothing, etc. This can help retain self-esteem and involvement in daily life. We have a dedicated activity co-ordinator who organises activities, such as arts and crafts, walking to the beach, sing-along music, and one-to-one involvement. The activities result in meaningful social interaction. This interaction enriches the resident’s physical and cognitive wellbeing through their participation.
