Additional Health Needs

Resident and staff member dance As our residents tend to be older, they often have dementia or other memory impairments. Our staff are trained to support people with memory loss as well as a vision impairment.

We have reminiscence rooms that have been designed to evoke times gone by.

Projects to support residents with dementia

In 2019, Royal Blind was awarded £20,000 by the Life Changes Trust with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund over two years. Through the project, we will research what activities in care homes people with sight loss and dementia find most rewarding, and how activities can be tailored to their needs.

Many people with dementia enjoy reminiscence through looking at photographs or watching films. But since this can be challenging for people with sight loss, Royal Blind staff are developing activities for residents where they can take part in reminiscence through other means - for example in local foods or memorabilia.
