Relationship Centred Care

Barry, Activities Co-ordinator, with a resident at Braeside HouseOur approach to care is based on the Senses Framework. We support 'Relationship Centred Care', which is a way of working where the relationships built between residents, relatives and staff are valued.

Staff adopting a Relationship Centred Care approach take into consideration that although a resident may now be living with dementia and / or other disabilities, they are still a person with needs, wants and feelings. We ensure that we are aware of the residents’ life history and take this into consideration when we care for them.

By seeing the person, we avoid a ‘one size fits all’ approach to care.

We aim to help the residents to maintain their independence and enable them to achieve realistic goals.
