Wellington Terrace is committed to responding to dementia care needs while respecting the dignity and individuality of the Resident. The extent of dementia is different for each Resident and therefore our plan and goals will reflect that. Our dementia supported programme includes:
Ontario's Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) are enhancing services for seniors who exhibit behaviours associated with complex and challenging mental health, dementia or other neurological conditions by investing in local initiatives that will improve care.
These investments are part of the provincial Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO), which focuses on providing quality care for individuals with these conditions, in an environment that is based on safety, high quality, evidence-based care and practice. Wellington Terrace has two employees assigned to take a lead to focus on our action plan.
This link will take you to a document published in the UK, which we think is a very useful guide to assist families and care givers in supporting someone with dementia. It demonstrates a language and approach to care, we strive for.
