Care

Each member of our specialist team has significant experience caring for residents with dementia. We look beyond the condition and develop a supportive relationship with each individual, getting to know their life history and the person they were before they developed dementia, helping them to live a full and independent life as much as possible.

Because Griffiths House offers just eight bedrooms, we have been able to create a home from home environment that is safe, calm and relaxing. The quality of life for each of our residents is paramount and as such the individuals who live at Griffiths House will be those who benefit most from this particular setting.

Each resident has a bespoke activity programme, designed by our in-house activities coordinator, which aims to stimulate social interaction and help build purposeful relationships. We welcome input from family and friends to ensure that each resident has a programme tailored to their personality and ability, and that reflects positively on their life before dementia.

We empower residents to participate in developing their care plans and we involve them in decisions about their care, supporting them to make choices and retain their independence. We are equally dedicated to supporting the family through this journey as well as the resident, and we actively encourage family and friends to become part of this small community.

"I would like to thank Katherine and Griffiths House for looking after all my Mum's needs. For understanding her dementia. Mum always says she is happy and over cared for, I couldn't wish for more. All the family would agree."
Daughter of MA, Bristol


"Griffiths House has a very calm and welcoming feel to it. The staff seem warm and helpful and having peaceful grounds to be able to take a walk in seems ideal."
Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards assessor, Bristol


"Griffiths House was recommended to us by a friend who recently retired from a senior role in adult mental health in the NHS. Having visited a few establishments, it was clear that Griffiths House was outstanding. The staff are kind and sensitive in responding to (resident's) needs including taking out for walks when they can. I'm impressed by the many ways the staff find to communicate with her by miming and using cards with words and images on to help her express herself. She has formed definite connections there. She said to us after a few weeks "I have 4 friends" and to see her interacting with the staff demonstrates a level of trust, fondness and connection which is precious."
Daughter in law of LS, Bristol
