Dementia Care

Our Compassionate Dementia Care Home in Weymouth.

Living with dementia at Chestnuts

Dementia can affect people in very different ways and often, their symptoms can change and alter in their prominence from moment to moment and over time as their condition develops.

At Chestnuts Care Home in Weymouth, our approach to dementia care is of compassion, kindness and sensitivity, where residents are supported to live meaningful lives full of happiness, acceptance and contentment, irrespective of the type of dementia they live with and their symptoms at any given time.

We achieve this sensitive approach by spending time with our residents, and those closest to them, gaining an understanding of their medical and wellbeing needs, their likes and dislikes and how their dementia currently affects them which, in turn, enables our loving team members to deliver the very best care and support.

Promoting Choice & Independence

We pride ourselves on being one of the leading dementia care homes in Weymouth, offering support to our residents as well as their family and friends.

By cherishing and nurturing each person’s individuality, and developing a true understanding of them, we form close bonds with our residents and are able to read small changes in someone’s mood and overall wellbeing at any given time.

This enables us to tailor our care in a flexible and responsive way, which evolves with their changing condition, helps us to promote choice and independence and support feelings of happiness and safety whilst minimising insecurity, anxiety and frustration.

Life with Us

We provide a variety of tailored activities and dining options for our residents living with dementia living in our dementia care home in Weymouth, supporting them to enjoy their days and feel valued and contented.

Our home environment is designed to support the overall wellbeing of our residents who live with dementia. Along with bedroom door numbers, residents are able to choose their own door colour to aid with recognition and clear signage for communal spaces support residents to understand the function of a room before going in.

Our dining room features colours which provide contrast between tablecloths, cutlery and tableware – helping residents to see the objects more clearly and supporting continued independence, whilst meals are shown to residents enabling them to choose which one is more appealing to them.

A Home for Life

We are proud of our ability to also be able to provide dementia care, respite care and end of life care within our home. This provides flexibility for people, whether that’s initially for those who prefer a short-term stay whilst they get to know us and settle in before a permanent move or, as someone’s needs increase over time.
