Mewsbrook House believe that dementia should not prevent anyone from leading a full and active life. People with dementia do have specific and individual needs and in recognition of this and have developed the highest standards in expert care for those with dementia as well as assistance for their families. Care is based on various principles and they strive to create a homely atmosphere in a relaxed and secure environment where residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and individuality is respected.
Professionals aim to develop life-skills, encourage freedom of choice and promote residents' sense of self-worth. Provision enables those with dementia to live rather than merely exist. Those living with confusion, memory loss and dementia are very often misunderstood. They may present with unusual behaviour, which gives conflicting messages or is out of character. Their philosophy is firmly grounded in the idea that no two people are the same. Essential to care is the recognition of each person’s individuality: they support and celebrate uniqueness.
