Dementia Care

Our home is designed to provide a safe, caring, and welcoming environment for people living with dementia. All members of our Dementia Care Team have received extensive, specialised training in dealing with all types and levels of memory impairment. Our staff has undertaken extensive training to guarantee that each individual who stays with us at Queens View Harbour Care Home is treated with the utmost care and respect.

Our Activity Coordinators consistently meet or exceed resident expectations, engaging with dementia residents and their families to create activities and therapies that are suited for their specific needs and to assist them in thriving as much as possible. Daily planned activities increase social and mental stimulation and interaction while also relieving any frustrations that might be associated with dementia.

What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a neurological disorder that impairs several elements of cognition, including speech and memory. People living with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest with the right care and support, while our team members help them preserve their sense of self and independence for as long as possible. Queens View Harbour Care Home understands that no two people with dementia are the same and that although some may only require minor assistance with daily activities, others may require much more. Our Dementia Care is tailored to each individual, and our home and staff provide the perfect environment for people to live a happy and full life.

Our Approach to Dementia Care

Our staff has completed intensive dementia care training, and we are proud to be able to deliver the greatest degree of care and respect to each patient. We are committed to providing services to our residents that enable them to reach their full potential and live happy and comfortable lives. Regularly scheduled activities promote social and cerebral stimulation, as well as the resolution of any frustrations or tensions associated with dementia. Our house was built with specialised designed areas and a sense of the need for comfort and familiarity, as well as practical amenities such as en-suite bedrooms and an appreciation for the value of specific comfort items.

When is Dementia Care Necessary?

Dementia poses a number of difficulties for those who live with it and those who care for them on a daily basis. The disease is a neurodegenerative syndrome, which means that as time passes, individuals with dementia will require more attention and guidance when it comes to living their life as usual. If a person’s Dementia has progressed to the point where they require more guidance and help than they can receive at home, they will most likely require the services of a care home. The team at Queens View Harbour creates an honest picture of a resident’s life with the help of family and loved ones, ensuring that both medical and wellness treatments are considered and promoted.

 

Care that Goes Above & Beyond, Always

Our teams have been dedicated to supporting our residents through these unprecedented times, prioritising the health and safety of our residents above all else. As well as being a continual source of reassurance for their families and friends. We have maintained the highest levels of hygiene, in a warm and friendly environment, with around-the-clock, person-centred care. It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked.

High-Quality Care Remains Our First Priority

Nothing is more important to us than the well-being of our residents. At Queens View Harbour Care Home in Troon, providing high standards of care is vital, and you can rest confident that you will receive care that is second to none, 24 hours a day. Our devoted, compassionate, and experienced team delights in providing person-centred care that respects privacy and dignity. We can modify and evolve the care given as needed as individual needs change over time, working in cooperation with residents and their families. All of this takes place in a safe, secure, and comfortable environment where all of your needs are met.

 

Medical Services Offered

There are a variety of medical services available to our residents that are not included in the overall charge, but which we believe are critical to have on hand in the event of an emergency. We want our residents to feel brand fresh and full of life when they come to live with us at Queens View Harbour and enjoy every day they spend with us. As a result, while you stay with us at Queens View Harbour Care Home, you’ll have access to the following amenities.

 

Opticians

One of the first things that deteriorate as we become older is our vision. Regular visits from local opticians are available at Oakdene Care Home to ensure that our residents’ eyesight is well cared for.

Physiotherapy

Our residents can participate in periodic physiotherapy sessions to ensure that their aches and pains are well taken care of. Our joints and muscles can deteriorate as we age, making physiotherapy even more vital.

Dentists

Residents who require dental care during their stay at Queens View Harbour Care Home have access to a local dentist with whom they can schedule appointments and see as frequently as they choose.

GP Visits

If one of our residents wants to make an appointment with a local physician or GP, they are welcome to do so. If they are okay with it, we can also make an appointment on their behalf. We want to make sure our residents always get the very best treatment.
