Care is at the core of the who we are at CBCS. Our main priority is to care for people and families living with dementia and other cognitive impairments. We love and care deeply for the people entrusted to us and work to provide specialized care and ‘meaningful person-focused programs’ available 24 hours a day.

Whether you or someone you know is living with Dementia, it can be challenging to manage, and the future outcomes are often unclear. In instances like this, it can be hard to understand what is happening to the people we love. That is why our Dementia Care program at CBCS works closely with families to support them throughout the process.

Caring for Dementia is challenging to do on your own, it can be confusing for the patient and hard on loved ones. We are committed to the wellbeing of others and although sometimes unexpected changes occur that affect you or a loved one, we are confident that our Dementia care will help alleviate some of the concerns you may have.

In Caring for Dementia, it is not a one size fits all plan. Everyone who comes through our doors carries a unique experience, so it is our priority to learn how we can best help them. Our Dementia Care staff have specialised expertise and interest in residents with this condition. Our staff take their time in understanding needs individually to identify the ideal treatment plan for each patient.

When it comes to Caring for Dementia, we want to ensure everyone receives the attention they deserve. Depending on individual circumstances, a person may be admitted to different areas of the facility if they are in the earlier stages of the illness. Other residents may be transferred to secured units directly from home or from the hospital. Later some of these residents will be transferred to other secure units for appropriate care. During this process, we ensure that residents are comfortable as our team members lovingly take them through these transitions.

Your loved ones are in good care at CBCS. Part of the success in providing specialised care to people living with dementia, is in the openness of our staff who work daily to cultivate a warm and safe in environment.
