Caring for residents with dementia at HillView Care

If you and your loved one have made the decision that it’s no longer safe for them to live independently, it’s time to start looking for a residential care home that meets their needs. 

Looking for an aged care home can be an overwhelming experience, which is made even more difficult if your loved one has a medical condition such as dementia.

At HillView Care we know that caring for your loved one is important, that’s why we offer specialist dementia care.

How is dementia care different to regular residential aged care? 

If you’re looking around at different residential aged care homes you may be wondering what’s the difference between dementia care and regular residential aged care. At HillView Care our dementia care has all the benefits of our residential aged care, and more.

As you have probably already experienced, people living with dementia may need specialist care. In dementia care residents will receive specialist care, personalised to their needs. This could include extra medical attention, individual care and increased security. 

What are some benefits of our dementia care at HillView Care?

Our Merrimac and Ashmore homes are both dementia friendly communities, meaning many residents living with memory loss can reside in the residential aged care communities in HillView. 

At HillView Care Merrimac we also offer a secure dementia care unit for residents who have special memory loss needs. In this unit we care for both permanent and respite residents. It’s important to us that all residents who have dementia are cared for in a personalised way, while protecting their dignity and helping them feel at home. 

One of the main benefits of our dementia care at HillView Care is our highly qualified, carefully selected team of carers. They are loyal and passionate about caring for others. They often form strong bonds with residents and always take a respectful and caring approach. 

To build strong relationships with residents, staff focus on gaining a great understanding of residents’ life experiences and their interests. This also ensures your loved ones are cared for in the best possible way. 

Our team of caring staff will also go out of their way to ensure you and your family continue to stay informed of your loved one’s progress. We value communication and want to make things as easy as possible for you and your loved one.
