Dementia Support in Wandsworth
Signature at Wandsworth Common offers two dedicated communities for residents living with dementia. With just ten studio suites on Rose Hill Way, 3rd floor, and a further ten studios in All Farthing Way, 4th floor. Our communities have a comfortable yet elegant, family feel.
Specially designed using the Gold standard Framework from Stirling university, our dedicated communities for residents living with dementia utilise top of the range technology to ensure maximum independence for residents within a safe environment.
Thoughtfully Designed Accommodation
As a brand-new purpose-built home, we have designed these communities with just 10 studios on each floor. This helps our residents feel at home, without overstimulation from a large number of residents in the same environment. This enables our specialist dementia care teams to get to know the residents very well and ensure they feel at ease within their own space.
Each suite has been specifically designed for those living with dementia, The décor is calm, relaxing and gives a warm family feel.
Residents are encouraged to personalise their room bringing items they are familiar with from their own home such as family photos, a favourite chair, dressing table or book shelf, we work with families to ensure that each resident’s room is perfect for them in comfort, design and layout enabling independence.
Each studio has its own en-suite wet room with sensor controlled lighting and special wayfinding features as well as a 43” TV and air conditioning.
Facilities in Our Communities
With our residents at the forefront of everything that we do, we have ensured that every little detail has been taken into consideration. From easily identifiable rooms to wayfinding, we have ensured that every aspect of the community is accessible and easily understood.
We pride ourselves on having a safe and homely environment with plenty of quiet places for our residents to relax and unwind.
We make the best use of natural light with floor to ceiling windows throughout the communities to help our residents make sense of their environments.
What’s more, residents living on Rose Hill Way and All Farthing Lane benefit from private access to a beautiful open plan dining room with lounge, kitchen, an activities area and outdoor terrace. There is also an accessible spa bathroom. Residents may also wish to visit the main communal areas on the ground floor which include a cinema, café and outdoor gardens.
Rose Hill Way also benefits from a second lounge with extended views over Wandsworth Common.
How We Care for Your Loved One Living With Dementia
We understand that each resident living with dementia is different. We dedicate time to each resident getting to know each individual on a personal basis from day one, this includes understanding as much as we can about each resident including; family life, background, likes dislikes and important life events.
Spending this valuable time with our residents enables us to create a tailored care plan and bespoke activities programme specifically for each individual, making the most of their capabilities and empowering independence. Care plans are updated on a daily basis and adapted as residents’ interests, capabilities and needs change.
