Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Care
At Coast Care Homes we strive to be different to the old one size fits all approach of caring for elderly people with memory loss. With training and ongoing development we continuously try to understand the individual needs of our residents with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Our approach to care is always considerate of our resident's type of dementia / memory loss with their plan of care ever developing as a condition changes.
Foremost at all times is the quality of care we provide ensuring that we preserve dignity and treat all residents with due respect. This care is tailored to promote independence as much as is possible which we feel is key to quality of life for residents with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other dementias.
Activities & Events for Individual Needs
Our experienced events co-ordinator makes sure that a wide variety of activities and events are on offer tailored for individual needs and requests. Having Alzheimer's for example doesn't mean that a resident will not be involved in activities, it means that we have activities on offer that suit their needs as well as general activities that all can enjoy.
This program of activities is designed to ensure that every resident, whatever their ability or skills, has the opportunity to participate in something creative, educational or simply just fun. The location of our homes in Bexhill and St Leonards also means we are ideally located with a wide variety of attractions that are on offer across Kent and Sussex.
Deciding on Residential Care
We actively encourage people who may be interested in our care homes to firstly arrange a visit. If you are enquiring on someone's behalf, whether a family member or someone you care for, it is often a good idea to visit prior to introducing the prospective resident. Here you can freely ask us questions and take your time inspecting our care homes and facilities. Importantly you can see how happy the current residents are and decide whether your family member will be equally happy. Should you like what you see it is possible to arrange a short term or trial period of care to make sure that everyone is happy and able to settle in.
The process of placing a family member into a care home is sometimes difficult and often daunting for the person, carers and family. This can be more complicated with people suffering with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's depending on the level of the condition. At every point of this process we will do our best to make sure the transition is a happy one, accommodating any requests whenever possible.
