Southlands Place Nursing Home in Bexhill on Sea, this week launched its Residential Dementia facilities by hosting a free local community event on-site.
Over 40 guests learnt about Southlands
exciting plans in the months to come that respond to a growing demand for
Dementia care in our community and were able to see how the home has extended
its Dementia care
provision as part of the Caring Homes Group wider investment in its 68 homes
Visitors to the home, residents
and colleagues joined together for lunch and listened as guest speakers shared
how Caring Homes’ unique dementia training ‘Living in my world’ helps to
improve lives of people living with dementia. They also learnt more about the
new regular Dementia Café being hosted for friends and neighbours.
The home was delighted to also
enable guests to hear from Dementia expert, Sally Hemmings, from Bexhill
Dementia Action Alliance and Carl Bradley from Caring Homes.
Many were offered the opportunity
to see Southlands latest design features that are helping people to live well
with dementia, including the latest technology, new internal signage that
specifically helps people living with dementia navigate around their home more
easily, new furniture, fixtures and furnishings.
The vibrant well attended event received very positive feedback from
members of the local community which included many health and social care
professionals, some visiting the home for the first time. The event culminated
with a very inclusive ribbon cutting to launch the new dementia facilities
which was completed by residents, colleagues and guests together.
