Situated in the historic and picturesque county of Ayrshire, Queens View Harbour is a purpose-built care home in Troon that offers high-quality Dementia Care, Residential Care, Nursing Care, and Respite Care for those who require care on a short-term basis. Our home provides luxury accommodation and exceptional facilities to those who require elderly care and to support those with specific health conditions such as dementia.

What does Dementia Care mean? 

Dementia is a condition that typically impairs a person’s cognitive abilities, including their memory and the way they think and communicate. People affected by dementia can receive dementia care in a variety of settings including residential and nursing care homes, both of which are designed to provide medical, physical, and emotional support to people with dementia.

The way in which dementia care and support is provided is dependent on each individual’s case and takes into consideration their stage of dementia and symptoms. Identifying signs of dementia is the first step in determining what support is required for yourself or a loved one. Symptoms of early to mid-stages of dementia can appear in many ways including, but not limited to, forgetfulness with dates and appointments, struggling in social situations, and experiencing challenges with daily tasks. These may be an indication that dementia care is needed. 

As a progressive condition, symptoms of dementia can worsen over time, although this is at a different rate for each individual. When dementia is at a more advanced level, some people may experience a loss of awareness and surroundings or experience difficulty with mobility and communication which may require specialist support. To help establish the best type of support, an assessment may be carried out. Care homes are an option for dementia care providers as professional care services are provided by a team of nurses and carers, helping people with dementia to live independently whilst receiving the right support for them.
