Every member of Heliosa staff is trained in caring for those who suffer from all types of dementia. We have specialised therapies specifically for treatment of symptoms and slowing the progression of dementia, and welcome those who are newly diagnosed right up to advanced dementia. We strongly believe in promoting choice and independence, no matter how affected by dementia a resident is.
Our Home Manager and the Activities Co-ordinator have worked hard to provide a dementia-friendly environment using sensory technology, artwork and interactive murals in the corridors and lounges and specialisd signs and aids such as dementia-friendly crockery, bright door/room colours, with more planned for the future.
My mother spent the last six months of her life at Heliosa. The care from all the staff was without question 'second to none'. They went that extra mile to make sure that my mums last few months were as lovingly cared for as she was in her own home. I shall never forget their kindness. I would recommend this home to anyone who wished to have peace of mind for their loved ones welfare.
The simple word of ‘thanks’ sometimes feels not enough. For the wonderful care my mum has received from everyone. The overwhelming love and compassion shown at Heliosa has been second to none. Each and everyone have gone that extra mile to ensure my mum was so very well looked after. Each day was a pleasure to visit, for the love you show is awe inspiring to both family and residents.
