Dementia Care

Those with dementia have very specific requirements and require a unique care environment. Dementia is a general term for diseases and conditions characterised by a decline in memory, problem-solving, language and other thinking skills that affects one’s ability to perform daily tasks.

Although it can occur at any age, it is more common in people over 80 years of age and is certainly one of the most common causes of dependency in older adults.

We offer dedicated dementia care in certain of our Auria communities.

Our clinical-social hybrid approach is based on an internationally successful example in which people with dementia are integrated socially within a secure and controlled community, allowing them the opportunity to benefit from the many activities and specialised support available.

Our focus in dementia care is to establish an authentic caring relationship by knowing the person and the person’s reality and to support meaningful engagement through a collaborative team approach.

Families are encouraged to participate in all decisionmaking processes and in a regular assessment programme.

Through this holistic, person-centred approach, our residents can enjoy their best quality of life. Every single day. Our philosophy in this regard aims to break down the misunderstandings and stigmas associated with dementia, which often stand in the way of optimal care.
