That’s why it’s critical to us at Marion Lauder Care Home that we offer our care team regular training and guidance to understand how to support people living with dementia. Our dememtia specialist care has been shown to improve well-being, following research and long term experience and continues to develop to meet the changing needs of older people.
Our carers at Marion Lauder dedicate themselves to making your loved one’s life as fulfilling as possible. They help to provide simple pleasures that can put a smile on your family member’s face. Whether it’s a walk in the beautiful on-site garden or time spent in the day centre, these small activities have a big impact. Our definition of care goes beyond dispensing medicine; it’s giving individuals dignity and respect in all we do.

How It Works
The Stages of Dementia Care – What to expect
You’ll have an assessment by a professional, that takes into account your abilities, needs and wishes. There will be involvement with your family if you wish, in decisions about intermediate care. This includes whether it will be suitable for you and which setting it will be provided in.
You’ll be given information about the service and what will be involved. You’ll receive support to plan what you are aiming for (your goals) and how to reach them. These discussions can include your family and carers if you wish. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions.
You’ll receive support from a range of people, including therapists, to help you towards your goals. How long the service lasts may change, depending on the progress you make. Any information you need to help achieve your aims will be written in a way that makes sense to you.
If you need ongoing support, you’ll be given a plan for transferring to another service. Information about other types of support available will be provided. You’ll be given information about how to refer yourself back to the service, if you need to.

Our service is designed to be completely flexible to meet the changing needs of our clients and their carers.
