We value everyone
Forest Edge highly values each of their residents, their families, and their loved ones. We treat all our residents as individuals, appreciating that all people with dementia have a unique history, identity, personality as well as physical, psychological and social resources, and that these will affect their response to cognitive impairment.
We look at the world from the perspective of the person with dementia; recognising that each person’s experience has its own psychological Validity, that people with dementia act from this perspective and that empathy with this perspective has its own therapeutic potential.
We recognised that all human life, including those with dementia, is grounded in relationships, and that people with dementia need an enriched social environment that both compensates for their impairments and fosters opportunity for personal growth.
Forest Edge continuously seeks ways in developing its person-centred approach to dementia care and throughout all aspects of the service we provide; not only to the individual residents themselves but for their family, friends and loved ones too.
Forest Edge Care Home aims to provide a high standard of stimulus activities, the energy and desire to continue doing the things our residents love. It is our aim to provide a person centred approach in all areas of care, including activities. Getting to know some of each individual’s history helps us understand what they enjoyed doing in the past that could foster feelings of self worth today
Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Safe, Effective & Compassionate Care
Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator for health and social care in England. It makes sure services such as hospitals, care homes, dentists and GP surgeries provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care, and encourages these services to improve. The CQC monitors and inspects these services, and then publishes its findings and ratings to help people make choices about their care.
