We support our service users by setting out a behavioural management plan led by an allocated Consultant Psychiatrist who specialises in organic illnesses and is deputy chair of the faculty of old age psychiatrists.
All of our staff endeavour to provide useful, constructive and supporting activities to help prevent boredom, which can be a trigger for self-damaging or aggressive behaviours in people with dementia. One of the underlying principles of the John Munroe Groups’ care philosophy is to provide a community and meaningful ways to spend time for patients whilst in the unit.
All of our patients in our 14 bedded specialist dementia service at Rudyard, Nr Stoke are male. We offer dementia friendly activities and groups so that they can have the best possible quality of life.
We also have sensory equipment such as the Magic Table – the games provide adults, older people and children with a specific care need with activities that are meaningful and above all lots of fun!
We feel it is vital that every single one of our service users are treated as an individual so that they get personalised care and gives them the crucial opportunity to take the clinical and therapeutic support that they require, ensuring that we give them the guidance and help to sort out problem areas of their lives.
At the John Munroe Group we are always looking at ways in which we can improve our care and treatments for our patient groups, which is why we always welcome feedback (please click here for more details):
