About our dementia-friendly residential care homes: Romford Nursing Care Centre, Essex
|Romford Nursing Care Centre in Harold Hill, Romford, Essex, specialises in high quality dementia-friendly care and nursing dementia care, delivered alongside services for frail older people.
Our home provides a welcoming environment in which residents with dementia are able to live with dignity and comfort. We recognise that alongside individual physical and emotional care needs, each person has their own unique preferences about the way they want to lead their life, so it is their decisions that shape their day-to-day routines, including the time they get up or go to bed and the clothes they wear.
Each resident is linked with a carer who develops a detailed knowledge of their life history and interests. The insight and understanding this gives further enables us to design activities around their interests and we provide a variety of opportunities for residents to enjoy social activities, hobbies and leisure interests.
Our social activity organisers arrange various activities including movement to music sessions, singalongs, games, craft and art sessions, baking and bingo and we also support residents who wish to practice their chosen faith. Our residents’ group meets regularly to discuss a range of topics, including activities within the home.
Meal times offer an excellent opportunity for residents to socialise in our dining room but we understand that not everyone always wants to eat with others and if someone prefers to eat in their own room, we can arrange this.
Wherever possible, we involve our dementia clients in drawing up their personal care plan and we also consult family members where appropriate. Residents are able to continue to see their own GP where practical or register with our own GP, who visits the home regularly and on request. We can also arrange visits to other health professionals, such as an optician, dentist or physiotherapist, as required.
Good food adds interest and enjoyment to everyone’s life while a balanced diet plays an important part in maintaining someone’s overall health and well-being. We provide meals that are both tasty and nutritious and can cater for special diets, including cultural and faith-based diets. We will also involve our chef, dietician, the resident and family members to ensure nutritional needs and personal preferences are met.
