When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia it can be an overwhelming experience. There are more than 820,000 people living with dementia in the UK and every 3 minutes someone else will be diagnosed with this debilitating and distressing condition.
At Ashton Manor we understand the demands this condition places on families with loved ones living with dementia, and we have designed our care home around their needs. We celebrate the person they have been and continue to be by learning about hobbies they enjoy, the careers they dedicated their lives to, music they love to listen to, and family members they are close to. We encourage residents to bring their favourite photographs and mementos which help to trigger happy memories and important milestones in their life. Activities are tailored to individual abilities and preference to keep residents as mentally and physically active as possible. Meals are balanced and nutritious, favourite recipes can be requested as we recognise that these can evoke happy memories and feelings of comfort.
Our home incorporates key features recommended by leading research groups to help with the nature of this progressive condition. Lighting has been set to standards which helps residents with cognitive impairments. Communal spaces, although spacious and airy, have been organised into smaller ‘households’ to encourage residents to socialise in smaller numbers and gain confidence. Gently curved corridors enhance a sense of homeliness whilst themed galleries and interactive spaces provide visual stimulus and improved orientation.
If you are looking for residential dementia care for a loved one, you can be assured that at Ashton Manor we have years of experience caring for those affected. We will strive to address your worries or concerns, ensuring a calm and comfortable transition into our home.

We recognise the decision to move a loved one into residential care can be a difficult one. Although many people are staying in their own homes longer, isolation and loneliness can lead to an increased risk of depression and other mental and physical health problems. Your loved one coming to a care home doesn’t mean that your role as a carer endsRead More
