Dementia Care

The challenges of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia obviously affect those suffering, but they can also have a profound effect on their loved ones. The burden can be great, so great that the loved one can barely see the distinction between the person and the condition.

Engleburn works closely with families to help them understand these challenging conditions more clearly, and includes them as much as possible in the process of caring. An open dialogue is essential, in our view.

Engleburns  dementia unit (foxholes) provides specialist care and facilities to cater for the individual needs of those diagnosed with advanced dementia. There are highly skilled carers specifically trained to understand dementia and who can meet the needs of residents on a 24 hour basis.

Engleburn care home provides tailor made activities including a snoozelem room in a safe and secure environment to ensure the best quality of social well-being.
