Cote House Lane, Westbury On Trym, Bristol BS9 3UW
Griffiths House is part of The Cote Charity and situated adjacent to well-respected care home Katherine House. The home has been thoughtfully designed to provide a warm, bright, spacious, safe and secure environment for people living with dementia.
Using sustainable materials and the latest technology, the home will offer well-equipped private bedrooms with specialist dementia furniture and lighting. The en-suite wet rooms will be tiled to highlight the toilet and sink area, with contrasting toilet seats and grab rails with a mirror which can be tilted to hide a reflection if needed. The doors throughout will be individually colour-coded with 'dementia friendly' signage to promote the recognition of surroundings.
In addition, Griffiths House will feature a bright and welcoming multipurpose communal lounge with Sky TV and Wi-Fi, a fully-equipped kitchen suitable for the residents to access and a small salon for hairdressing and other therapeutic treatments, contributing the home-from-home environment provided for residents.
A team of specialist dementia care staff will offer a person-centred yet holistic approach to resident care with a particular emphasis on trust, empathy, respect and kindness as each individual is supported to retain their own identity. The activities will be appropriate residents with dementia and will be tailored to each individual by researching their likes and dislikes, previous professional and personal life experiences.
The landscaped secure garden has been designed to allow the residents to use this space for calm and safe experience with a planning scheme to emphasise colours and fragrance.
