St. Brelades and The Cumberland carehomes specialise in dementia care and offer a friendly residential service for women.
St Brelades and The Cumberland care homes are top local providers of specialist residential dementia care in Herne Bay, Kent, offering women with dementia from across the county a friendly, home-from-home environment.
Our approach to care is based on a firm belief that emotional health and wellbeing is as important as physical health. In our daily lives, our staff and residents get to know each other as friends as well as carers. We look beyond the dementia to see the person, so that we can understand their personal wants and needs even when dementia means they can’t always communicate easily with us.
Skilled, dedicated staff team
Each of our specialist dementia carers is dedicated to maintaining our residents’ dignity and personal privacy, and supporting them to make choices about their daily life whilst at the same time meeting their personal care needs.
We pride ourselves on making sure that we have an abundance of staff on duty at all times. This ensures that carers are always on hand to respond to a resident’s call, and have plenty of quality time to spend with them.
Life isn’t just about a high standard of personal care. Although dementia may have changed much for our residents, our approach to care involves finding out as much as we can about their lives and their preferences, so that we can help them find interesting and stimulating things to do.
Our dedicated Activities Co-ordinators plan a varied and full weekly schedule, with a varied programme of things to do, to make sure that all tastes are catered for.
