Treating Dementia

Unfortunately, at this time, there is no cure for Dementia or its related diseases. There are several medications available that help to treat the symptoms of dementia. These medications attempt to improve the brain's functioning and try to delay the progression of symptons where as others maybe prescribed to control mood, psychosis or sleep problems.

At Scimitar Care Hotels PLC, along with the prescriptions from registered Doctors, we aid our residents through the difficulties that dementia can present by offering a whole host of activities that our residents are free to join in as they please (or not if they so wish), these include:

  • Regular yet gentle exercise to music, including using small instruments and soft foam equipment to help sensory awareness
  • Sing-along and dancing sessions
  • Entertainment provided by many local musicians and performers, playing classic songs from the many decades of popular music
  • Specific dementia units are decorated with sensory equipment on the walls and sensory items supplied for the residents to touch, feel and interact with
  • Games such as bingo, roulette and others to provide social interaction and entertainment
  • Doll therapy, which we've found to be very effective in helping those with Dementia become more focused, raises their spirits and enhances their communication with others
  • Allowing those who choose to walk to gently meander around the unit, without being asked to remain seated, but under supervision at all times

But what we really pride ourselves in is our staff providing individually centred, one on one interaction with each resident to cater for their individual needs and what makes them comfortable. Be that painting, knitting or dancing or quite simply allowing them to do nothing but watch the others, we've found many of our residents are at their most content watching their friends and neighbours doing the hard work!


Always remember that if you can't find what you're looking for here, you can contact us directly and we'd be more than happy to help guide you.
