Person centred nursing care at the Lodge revolves around humanizing care for Person with Dementia (PwD). Guided by our 5 Care Principles and Person Centred Care Approach, we continue to frame our nursing care where our residents take the centre stage of our care. For instance, daily nursing care centres on building relationship with the residents. We seek to create beautiful and pure staff -resident relationship, accepting who they are and adapting to their needs; knowing the resident as a whole, instead of just knowing their conditions. These are vital in planning our care so that residents can live well. By understanding their unique and inspiring stories, we could add to their beautiful memories.
Moreover, daily nursing care is beyond just physical well-being. It is about their abilities, utilising their remaining strengths and unleashing their potentials through normalising the routines while giving them back as much independence. A resident who has lost the ability to feed himself will be supported by nursing staff to self-feed using assistive feeding devices, similarly for daily grooming and other activities.
