Dementia Care service is specially designed and staffed to cater the needs of those elderly persons who suffer from various forms of dementia. Forgetting day to day routines can be devastating to someone’s life if not taken care of appropriately with care, love, compassion and great understanding of the progression of a cognitive decline. We provide healthy, structured routines in a safe environment to allow the resident to feel comfortable with their surroundings and with consistent caregivers whom they learn to recognise. It is a very scary time for a resident who is slipping in and out of their orientation which makes it very important to provide structure and set routines.
The decision to move a loved one to Kadji has to be made after the family members have visited our facility; had a chance to talk with our staff and other residents.
