The chances are if you’re reading this then you're facing one of your most difficult decisions – to put your loved one ‘into a care home’.
Perhaps this has come to a head because you've come to the sad realization that coping at home is simply no longer possible. After all, caring for someone with dementia is very demanding, especially as their symptoms develop.
Or maybe some specific incident has occurred that's made it painfully clear that they need 24 hour care and supervision and it’s no longer practical for you to provide it.
Whatever the reason you may well be feeling that you've somehow let them down by having to place them in a care home. Or maybe you're concerned that they won’t get the same love, care and attention that you give them at home.
An excellent facility, wonderful management and the staff are caring, kind and very personal to residents and family. The best care home I have ever visited across the Country.
The quality of my Father's life was improved and remains sustained despite increased age and inevitable frailty. I cannot speak highly enough of all of the staff members.
The realization that they are going to have to leave their home and move into full time care can be a terrifying prospect for your loved one too. They may have all sorts of fears like:
If you or your loved one are experiencing any of these fears we'd like to reassure you that we can help.
Choosing the right care home for your loved one is a vitally important decision, especially when they have dementia and may not be able to make their own views fully clear.
We believe at Quarry Mount we have created the perfect place for those living with dementia to experience the very best in life.
Caring for people who have dementia is what we do so our staff has build up an encyclopedia of practical knowledge and experience in providing the very best dementia care. We have experienced just about every type of dementia behaviour there is and so we now know the best ways to deal with them to keep your loved one calm and safe
The service, care and devotion shown to my mother over the past eight years has been excellent, we as a family could not ask for more!
We thank the managers and all of the team from the bottom of our hearts. We would highly recommend this fabulous residential care home.
Now it might seem odd to list double rooms as one of the reasons to choose this home. However, it's important to remember that someone living with dementia sees the world differently to you and I.
The reality is for many who have been used to sharing a room, being suddenly alone can bring on feelings of loneliness and even stress and anxiety.
We've found that sharing a room with someone else helps them to feel more comfortable and at home which helps them to feel more relaxed, sleep better and generally feel more happy and secure.
Our Activities Coordinator has devised a series of innovate and stimulation activities specially designed to help those with dementia to live a more fulfilling and rewarding life.
So your loved one will be able to interact with animals, experience nature, garden in our secure garden, visit interesting places, sing with our sing-a-longs, do various crafts & games and enjoy our visiting entertainers.
There is only so much looking at a website can tell you. We hope ours has given you a glimpse into the life your loved one will enjoy at Quarry Mount.
However, the best way to find out if we're a good fit for you is to come and visit. We can have a confidential chat about your loved one and their requirements and you can have a good look around the home and it's facilities.
The kettle's always on and you're more than welcome to visit anytime you wish. However, please phone ahead on 01793 250455 if you'd like to meet with Karen, the Home Manager as she's not always on site.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
P.S. Quarry Mount is a very popular home so to avoid disappointment please call to make sure a place is available before making a special journey to see the home.
