We take great pride in offering the highest standards of residential dementia care in each of our homes. We also offer nursing care within four of our homes. The level of care we give to each and every one of our residents is exactly what we would want our own loved ones to receive.
Whether it is residential, nursing or dementia care you are looking for, Hartford Care residents are encouraged to maintain their own lifestyles in a way which reflects their own personal choices, enabling them to have as much independence as possible. Safe in the knowledge that care and assistance is always close at hand, 24 hours a day, from our fully-trained care teams. These values are reflected across all our homes, whether it is residential or dementia care that you are looking for.
A full weekly activities calendar encourages residents to pick and choose from a range of options carefully created with each resident's interests, hobbies and abilities in mind. Each resident is free to join in with planned activities but there are always areas reserved for anyone who wishes to enjoy a little one to one time.
It goes without saying that food plays an essential role in promoting health and well-being. We only employ chefs with a true passion for home cooking who will happily ensure that all tastes, preferences, diets and appetites are catered for.
We will do our utmost to help make the transition of moving into our homes as comfortable and as easy as possible for all concerned. Bedrooms are freshly decorated to welcome a new resident and we encourage people to bring with them items of furniture, photographs, plants and other belongings to help them feel 'at home'.
Enjoying life doesn't have to stop with the diagnosis of dementia. As carers, we strive to give our attention to things that are most important and enjoyable for the individuals in our care. We care for the person first, rather than simply focusing on the dementia. The symptoms of dementia (i.e. memory loss, difficulties communicating, changing behaviour) may be distressing and often there's a fear of the unknown both for the person with symptoms of dementia and their families and friends. We can't take away the pain of living with, or watching someone you love living with dementia but we can help.
“You all help to ease what can be a most distressing time for all concerned with your gentleness and good humour. I have often thought I should like to move in as well!”
