Our dedicated dementia community
Purpose-built dementia community care home
Portsdown is the name of our dedicated dementia community at Wellington Vale care home. Everything in our community is carefully planned around our residents to feel welcoming and encouraging and to provide meaning.
In the Sensory lounge residents will find an array of plants, flowers and sensory items for stimulating touch therapy. And after the sense therapy is done, residents can relax in the lounge cafe that features a charming vintage look.
Each area of our dementia care community is designed to be purposeful and motivating, and features subtle way-finding items to help signpost residents around their care home.
Our dementia home
We work with external partners who are involved in the careful design and build of each of our care homes. To create the very best dementia friendly environments, all our partners participate in the latest dementia training to enable them to experience ‘virtually’ how it feels to live with dementia. This is then incorporated into the look and feel of our dementia care home.
Family members and carers will know how important it is to be able to take a break when caring for a loved one. Especially when you just need to recharge both mentally and physically from the pressure of looking after someone 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our respite care at Wellington Vale ensures your loved one receives the very best care and support within a beautiful luxury environment.
The convalescence care at Wellington Vale is second to none, allowing you to recover whilst being looked after by a dedicated care team.
And our short stays are a splendid opportunity to sample the dedicated care and luxury facilities within our beautiful care home.
