Our specialist dementia care homes in Buckinghamshire:

Living with dementia

There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today. By 2025, the number is expected to rise to over a million. One reason for this is that we have an ageing population – and dementia is primarily a condition associated with old age.

The term ‘dementia’ describes a syndrome – or condition - can be caused by lots of other diseases. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause, but other dementias include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies and frontotemporal dementia. The main symptoms experienced by a person with dementia are memory loss, confusion and difficulties reacting to everyday changes that happen around them.

What is specialist dementia care?

Dementia care is a specialist type of care service available for individuals living with dementia. It includes practical assistance with day-to-day tasks including preparing meals and getting dressed along with other beneficial activities such as cognitive stimulation and physical exercise.

Exceptional dementia care

At The Fremantle Trust, a person living with dementia will receive support from our specially trained care workers.

Our specialist dementia care team 

High-quality dementia care requires close working across a strong and dedicated team. We ensure all of our colleagues receive comprehensive and robust training using a blended approach and through our in-house Learning and Development team. 

Dementia training starts with an initial induction and progresses regularly using digital learning and face-to-face training, together with coaching in the work setting to ensure that standards are set and continuously improved.

We have had colleagues recognised for their contribution to the lives of people living with dementia in the Buckinghamshire Health & Social Care Awards. Read about Mandy Horne, our award-winning Bedside Buddy.

Our care home activities

We offer creative and rewarding activities, as part of group experiences, such as singing, arts and crafts and cognitive stimulation therapy. We also encourage people to try out domestic tasks including baking, or more ambitious projects like putting on a musical! Individual, bespoke activities take place for those who prefer more self-contained pursuits.

Family involvement

We rely greatly on the involvement and cooperation from family and friends of the person who has dementia. They bring a lifetime of knowledge which can aid our work enormously, building up a life story and enriching the person’s experience. Sharing care with families is a simple and effective way in which we can help a person truly ‘live well’ with dementia.
