What is dementia care?
A fundamental aspect of effective dementia care is the preservation of a sense of self for as long as possible. As human beings, we need to know who we are, feel proud of our abilities and be respected by others. For this reason, the focus at Magdalen House is less on the condition and more on the individual themselves – what makes them who they are and loved by others. This person-centred approach is in line with Allegra Care’s philosophy, which prioritises dignity, privacy and independence.
