We focus on an individual’s strengths

It may be difficult for those living with dementia to communicate their needs and wishes. This, in turn, can lead to isolation. At Dryfemount Residential Care Home, we focus on an individual’s strengths to develop methods by which they can re-engage with their friends, families and the community. Our activity coordinators will work individually with each resident to ensure that they are engaged in activities tailored to their needs and interests.
