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.

"My mother has been a content resident at Katherine House for the past two years. We couldn't ask for more in terms of the quality of care, friendly and helpful staff, great accommodation in beautiful surroundings.

Everything was going well although, along with the staff at Katherine House, I had noticed a deterioration in my mother's well-being. She has become more demanding and very forgetful.

Being diagnosed with dementia, it became clear that she would need specialist care and I was very concerned at the thought of having to move her to another residential home, knowing how upsetting and fretful this would be for my mother.

When news of Griffiths House was revealed, and my mother was offered a place in this brand new, purpose built dementia facility right next door to Katherine House, I felt so hopeful. Her transition should be relatively easy, the surroundings and everyone will be familiar, and yet the care will be tailored to my mother's specific needs.

I am so relieved that my mother will be able to move to a specialist dementia home that will actively enhance her quality of life for as long as possible."
Patricia Croker - daughter of Katherine House resident
