Specialist Dementia Care Homes
Dementia is different for everyone, for those living with it and also their loved ones. Dementia is difficult to see and hard to understand. That’s why specialist dementia care homes are so important. These facilities offer safe environments, specialised care and hands-on support that focuses on the individuals and their needs. As a result, this can bring an enormous sense of comfort to the families of someone living with dementia.
Some of Brendoncare’s homes offer specialist dementia care, staffed by highly qualified and experienced care and nursing teams, who strive to make residents feel at peace in an environment they know and trust.

Dementia care home FAQs
There are over 100 different types of dementia. The most common types are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.
We recognise that each individual’s experience will be different in line with the progression of the disease. There could be underlying health conditions or any number of healthcare factors to consider. Some people need residential care, while others need nursing care or a combination of both. At Brendoncare, we make sure you know what specific types of care are available; helping you discover the ideal dementia care home.

We understand that choosing a care provider for someone living with dementia is a big decision. Often, the circumstances can be just as unique as the individual.
Your loved one may need to move to a specialist dementia care home for several reasons. Their overall needs may have increased, there may have been a hospital admission, or the family or their carer are no longer able to support them. As a result, it is something the whole family should discuss.
Wherever you are on the decision-making journey, Brendoncare is here to help with advice and support available when you need it.
If your loved one has entered the later stages of dementia, it might well be time for round-the-clock, specialist care. Care home environments are likely to be able to keep people safe 24 hours a day, have specialist equipment and be able to help someone who might be finding communication more difficult in their own home. At this point, it’s essential to look into specialist dementia care homes or 24-hour carers.
If you’re looking for a care home for a loved one for the first time, it can feel a little overwhelming. To help you better understand the key decision-making factors, we’ve put together a simple overview of things we think you’d like to know about along the way.
