When is it Time to Consider Dementia Care?

Dementia encompasses a range of disorders that impair brain function, leading to changes in memory, thinking, and behaviour. As these symptoms become more pronounced, individuals may need specialised care to maintain their safety and overall well-being.

As dementia progresses, those affected may encounter increased communication difficulties, memory lapses, or even behavioural shifts like agitation.

These challenges can make daily caregiving increasingly difficult for family members. If you or a loved one exhibit these changes, it's crucial to consult with medical professionals, such as geriatricians or neurologists, for a thorough diagnosis. Once diagnosed, exploring appropriate dementia care options becomes essential.

Dementia Support in a Safe, Comfortable Environment

Mayflower’s qualified health professionals provide specialised dementia care as a part of our Aged Care services, at our state-of-the-art residences in Reservoir, Brighton and Pascoe Vale.

Our Aged Care homes offer safe and secure dementia-friendly rooms. These are thoughtfully designed for residents experiencing various stages of memory loss, from mild to severe cognitive impairment.

Beyond individual rooms, our Residential Aged Care facilities feature a comforting array of spaces and amenities, including hair and beauty salons, bowling greens, sensory gardens, libraries and lounges.


Tapping Into the Past to Enrich the Present

Our friendly and experienced carers facilitate a variety of activities, therapies and other forms of support and engagement for people living with dementia.

We involve residents from our Memory Support Unit in gentle social activities that seek to provide the warmth and comfort of past experiences while creating positive moments in the present.

Residents can exercise mind and body in our sensory gardens, or enjoy the creative stimulation and other health benefits of listening to and making music.

Some people living with dementia also respond well to doll therapy, which can help provide the comfort and socialisation that comes with caring for another. At Mayflower, all of these activities are carried out safely and responsibility, with dignity and respect.
