At Memory Nurture we have the understanding that comes from the personal experience of having family members or close friends of family experiencing dementia as well as from our health professional backgrounds and years of experience of working in dementia care.
Memory Nurture visiting facilitators are chosen for their warm and nurturing personalities and their desire to want to make a difference in the lives of people with dementia and their families. They have great empathy for people with dementia. We value the age old saying of “laughter is the best medicine” so we aim to include a sense of fun as well as contentment in our sessions.
Staying mentally stimulated and involved in activities that you have enjoyed in your life such as gardening, exercise or listening to a lovely piece of music, can help you or your family member feel uplifted and can promote positive connections to those dear to you. We want to help reconnect you to activities that you enjoy and value in life.
Our Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Social Workers and Physiotherapists have many years of experience in dementia care and/or rehabilitation , a number have specialised areas of expertise such as creative expression. Our Occupational and Physiotherapy Assistants, as well as Carers are all trained in the use of the Ashby Memory Method as well as other memory stimulation techniques. We believe that the quality of life is improved through early intervention.
