As part of our ongoing commitment to our service users, we have developed a long list of ways to help assist clients who may require additional health with their memory care. This is something we are passionate about and this passion shines through with the activities and care that we offer our clients.
What is memory care?
Brians can suffer the most during ageing and one of the things that can be affected is our memory. Although it is common to forget where you put your keys, when you are dealing with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it can be worse. As these both affect the memory, it can make day to day life very stressful as people struggle to grasp what is happening around them.
How is this different from other forms of help?
As part of our independent living ethos, we encourage all of our clients to be as independent as possible, and this extends to the Memory care section. The difference between the two is that Memory care clients are given extra assistance to help them during the day. They also have the help of a nursing team to help for the long term. Our speculated staff and memory enhancing activities are in place to help them enjoy their day to the fullest.
Why should you consider memory care at New Cente?
If you feel that the needs of your loved ones are getting too much for you to handle, they may benefit from having a home in our village. The secure campus and specialised homes can be adapted to any need. Many people discover that using our facilities is massively beneficial to themselves and their loved ones. Our support services can offer-
Custom exercises promoting strength, endurance and balance

Medication monitoring and administration
All of this is put together to provide a full care package that will help your loved ones be healthy and happy.
My loved one has Alzheimer’s and they appear to be getting better, should I remove them from your care?
As much as we would love to tell you yes, and allow you to take your loved one home with you, this may not be a good idea. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that has no cure. When your loved one arrives with us, you may see an improvement in their mood and wellbeing. This is because our staff are specialists who know how to assist people living with memory-based illnesses. However, over time, they will become worse and will need more care. This can include bathing, feeding, and extra health care to protect them from catching an infection.
If you have a loved one who is living with dementia or Alzheimer’s, our memory care facilities are second to none. We are happy to give you a tour of the village and show you exactly how we support our clients who require memory-based care. Our friendly staff are waiting to hear from you. Contact us today!
