Wentworth Court specialises in dementia nursing care tailored to suit the needs of the individual. We offer long-term residential care for those who need daily assistance or shorter-term respite and day care to enable carers to take breaks while their relatives benefit from the excellent care and facilities offered at Wentworth Court.

Dementia Care

Taking a holistic approach

Our dementia strategy underpins our ethos of holistic, person-centred care, for residents with all types of dementia diagnosis and at all stages of their dementia journey.

Keeping up-to-date with best practice

We take a dynamic, adaptive approach – regularly evaluating the support we provide against emerging best practice, to ensure that our residents benefit from the most up-to-date thinking on dementia care.

We engage with programmes developed by experts at organisations including the Alzheimer’s Society, Bradford University and Stirling University. See our training page for more information on how we invest in our team.

Involving families

We work closely with our residents and their families to understand changing and complex individual needs. Regular catch-ups with residents’ families and monthly group family meetings are part of our responsive culture, ensuring we provide the best possible care for loved ones.

Harnessing technology

Using the latest electronic care planning technology, we can access, review and evaluate individual care plans and actions in real time and ensure that everyone is on the ‘same page’.

By nursing residents in familiar surroundings, we can reduce stress which can aid recovery.

Understanding mental health

Through our commitment to meeting the social, physical, mental and spiritual needs of each resident and our investment in dementia-specialist training, we can use positive techniques to calm challenging behaviour and reduce the anxiety that is so often associated with dementia.

It is not uncommon for residents to have psychiatric medications reviewed and reduced once they are settled at Wentworth Court.
