Care

At Seabourne House, we are focused on delivering high-quality dementia care which is tailored to each residents’ individual needs.

From pre-admission assessments right through to care reviews, the residents at Seabourne House will experience a care plan that is unobtrusive. Each plan is designed to subtly provide them with the care, cues and direction they require to carry out their daily lives with both independence and dignity.

The staff at Seabourne House in Bournemouth are dedicated to ensuring our residents continue to benefit from the highest levels of wellbeing. As a result, we recently received ‘Good’ across the board from the latest Care Quality Commission inspection.

We also have a team of support staff committed to ensuring that all of our residents reside in a clean, comfortable and safe environment.

Dementia

Dementia occurs when the cells in the brain begin to die. Alzheimer’s, or a reduction in oxygen supply, are the leading causes of dementia, as they destroy brain cells and disrupt the intricate network of electrical connections that we rely on for maximum brain function.

It’s important to recognise that each person is unique, and will experience dementia differently from the next. Symptoms and manifestations of dementia include memory loss, and difficulties in thinking, problem solving and language. Recognising how dementia affects each and every one of our residents is one of the main ways in which we formulate individual care plans.

Because dementia is a progressive disease, we also work closely with GPs, nurses and mental health organisations. This enables us to continually assess and monitor the changes in behaviours, moods and habits that our residents experience alongside their dementia; and adapt their care plan accordingly.

We provide an intensive in-house training program which has been designed to provide our health care assistants with all the skills and knowledge required to deliver the highest level of dementia care in Bournemouth.

Palliative Care

As a specialist dementia luxury care home, we do not actively seek to provide rooms for elderly people who require palliative care. Here at Seabourne House however, we never move a current resident away from their home.

We neither seek to hasten nor prolong death. Our aim is to provide the care that your loved one needs to live out the rest of their days as comfortably as possible in the place that they consider their home.

Working with a multi-disciplinary team of medical staff, therapists and chaplains, we’ll make sure that your loved one’s final days are met with comfort and dignity.

Care Plans

The dignity, well-being and prolonging of independence for each resident are paramount to the team at Seabourne House. Through a combination of carrying out pre-assessments, studying medical records and talking to all involved parties, we gain a clear understanding of what we need to do. This enables us to put all of the above values in place for any new resident.
Prior to anyone moving into our Bournemouth luxury care home, we write up a detailed care plan. The care plan considers every single aspect of the resident’s life – from their capabilities and habits, right through to the medicines they take and their daily routines. We go into huge detail to ensure that your loved one receives the very best care for their individual needs.

Each member of staff is then given a care plan summary, so everyone knows the best way to approach the care of the new resident.
By getting to know each resident who resides here at Seabourne House, we gain a clear perspective of what is ‘normal’ for them. Through understanding each resident on a personal level, we can tell whether changes in behaviour and mood are linked to dementia, or whether something else could be the cause.

Aided by regular visits from local doctors, nurses, dieticians, occupational therapists, dentists and other medical professionals, we keep a close eye on the health and well-being of each resident. Our holistic approach ensures that no stone is left unturned when it comes to the care of your loved one.
