Dementia Friendly Environments


At Bertinaley Care Ltd, we provide high quality dementia care in our homes. We understand the specific challenges faced by people living with dementia and our trained staff are always happy to provide advice in a professional and compassionate way for both residents and their loved ones. 


We are committed to providing the unique and highly skilled care those living with dementia require in order to maintain a fulfilling, safe and dignified lifestyle.


Understanding age-related changes and impairments is the first step towards creating living environments which support the needs of older people and those with dementia, keeping them safe from dangers such as falls, which can have a devastating effect on an older person; allowing them the freedom and confidence to use their abilities to the fullest extent, in all things from the mundane to the creative; aiding memory in day-to-day living; and reinforcing personal identity.


Most of our communities have dedicated suites, all with specialist features and providing exceptional levels of care offering an energising, supportive and extremely homely environment for each resident.


We have made a number of improvements throughout our homes to make things easier, this includes colour door vinyls, picked by the residents themselves, brightly coloured light switches, personalised door signs and contrasting hand rails to name a few. We are also looking to introduce memory boxes into homes that we feel would be suitable. We are continually growing as a company to provide the best care possible.
