Residents at Farnham Mill receive full 24 hour dementia nursing care from a team of highly skilled nurses and carers, the home has been designed to help reduce the risk of falls and injury. A homely comfortable familiar dementia friendly environment helps to promote independence and helps residents to feel relaxed and safe.
Pictures and memorabilia have been carefully chosen to encourage reminiscence as well as creating a comfortable non-institutional feel to the home. Outside the beautiful gardens have been designed to enable residents with dementia to fully enjoy being outside in lovely safe surroundings.
We work in close partnership with residents and their families to help them on their journey with dementia. The different stages and types of dementia are well understood by our care staff. Alongside our nurses and care staff we work with our visiting GP Psychogeriatrician, physiotherapist, chiropodist and other health professionals, to help with residents care.
Residents and families have regular monthly meetings with their dementia nurse/manager to discuss any changes in care that may be needed. We also offer training and discussion groups for families to expand and share dementia related knowledge and experiences.
