Through our mission statement we aim to provide a service that is user led and focused. Providing the right care and support is essential to each person, which is why our service puts the individual at the centre of their care. We do this by:
- Treating the person as an individual with regard to their needs
- Promote personal independence and choice at all times
- Ensure that personal dignity and privacy are respected. By providing quality care we ensure our staff are well trained, friendly and have the necessary skills to provide good quality care.
Person-centered Dementia Care
At St Jude, we understand how important care and support is to those living with dementia and their families. We also value that many family members often care for their loved one, and that the pressure of providing round the clock care can be both physically and emotionally difficult. That is why we are here to help and support you the best we can.
We ensure that independence is maintained and that our residents live a fulfilling and meaningful life. We believe in living well with dementia, and that this is best achieved when a person is happy, comfortable and living a good quality of life.
To us, it is important that our staff are able to deliver front line care which is of high quality and adheres to professional standards. To ensure our staff can provide the best care for people living with dementia, we provide them with the support, training and skills required to carry out their caring role. We also help them to adopt a person-centered approach, sharing our vision of care and dementia care. We ensure our carers are enthusiastic and passionate with a friendly but professional work ethic to enhance the lives of those we care for. Our care staff at St Jude’s are committed to attending on-going training in all areas of dementia care at an advanced level. This ensures everyone is knowledgeable and confident in their approach and care delivery.
We care for residents living with dementia as individuals. By responding to the individual and supporting what they can do with a personalised care plan, we look for opportunities to build on their strengths and abilities. We use the customer’s life story to build a picture of their preferences, lifestyle, history, likes and dislikes this is done with the input of the resident, family/next of kin which are continually updated.
