11 Jan Innovating the future of bespoke dementia care
Over-looking Worthington Lake the care home can proudly boast being the first in the Greater Manchester, Lancashire area to be awarded with the much-coveted Gold Accreditation for excellence in dementia design.
Achieving such a commendation comes from the determination and commitment Millennium Care invested into working with only the best in the industry able to translate their ethos of good care.
Working alongside academics at a world renowned Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC), the 32-bed care home design and layout has been guided by the most forward thinking research in dementia care to allow individuals the freedom and confidence to use their abilities to the fullest extent in a safe, secure and enabling environment.
The lack of restricted areas encourages individuals to follow their own path and retain independence. Residents are enabled through access to secure outdoor sensory spaces and easily identifiable internal areas. Active involvement in a daily routine is encouraged, whether its preparing food in supervised kitchen facilities, visiting the in-house hair salon, managing ones own laundry, or caring for a specific patch of the garden – Worthington Lake is designed for people to flourish.
Worthington Lake’s ethos is living life to the full.
“We understand this; we are experts at supporting individuals live life to the full whilst supporting their aging journey. We had a dream to develop the ultimate built environment for those with Dementia to possess a good quality of life, and now as we prepare to open, I firmly believe we have achieved something very unique for those in Lancashire looking for luxury care without compromise.”
Key to the overall ethos is the home from home principle – personal identity isn’t left at the front door, it’s encouraged to flourish.
