Our Approach to Person-Centred Dementia Care
Eton House aims to provide person-centred care by using the Dementia Care Mapping observational tool and the VIPS framework. Based on the VIPS (Values, Individual, Perspective, Social Environment) model of Professor Tom Kitwood, leader in person-centred care for Dementia patients, Eton House has signed up to the Dementia Pledge and the Dignity In Care champion. We aspire to deliver the best person-centred care to our residents.
Dementia Care Mapping™ is an established approach to achieving and embedding person-centred care for people with dementia, recognised by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Dementia Care Mapping™ prepares staff to take the perspective of the person with dementia in assessing the quality of the care they provide. It empowers staff teams to engage in evidence-based critical reflection in order to improve the quality of care for people living with dementia.
Eton House has its own mapper who will assist in developing tailored person-centred care for the residents to continuously improve their quality of life.
Eton House uses the Jackie Pool’s “Bee Inspired Dementia Care Program” to provide individualised care tailored to the cognitive needs of our residents. For us, our care is tailored towards each individual’s needs, person centred care is at the heart of everything that we do.
There is plenty of signage up around the Home to help the residents find their way around. There is plenty of old fashioned furniture, posters and ornaments, all of which ensure that the feel of Eton House is very much that of a home. There are memory boxes placed outside the bedrooms for any residents that live with dementia. These are filled with items that have substantial meaning to them and help them to locate their room. It is important to remember, our residents do not live in our workplace, we work in their home.
At Eton House, each and every resident has a care plan that details their preferences and wishes for the way they wish to be cared for at Eton House. We continuously encourage families, friends and the residents themselves to take part in creating the care plan as it embraces all that is person-centered care. It is important to us that the focus is always on the individual rather than the dementia. We want the resident and their loved ones to have quality and memorable moments when they are together. Our aim is simple. We want our residents to live well with dementia.
Our vision is ‘a homely, creative and stimulating environment with strong family values’
