    Descriptive info: Explanation and Introduction to Dementia Care Programme at Oaklodge.. Oaklodge Nursing Home has established a now well recognised care programme for Dementia/Challenging Behaviour residents based.. on international best practice.. The specialised Dementia care programme offered by Oaklodge Nursing Home to residents has been developed based on international best practice with the help of experts in the field.. Oaklodge Nursing Home commissioned University College Cork School of Nursing to undertake primary research on international best practice models of care.. The essence of the approach is based on a much higher staff ratio as is required by residents with Dementia as well as a therapeutic care programme that engages the senses of the resident.. and calms them.. This reduces agitation and violence and places our residents at ease with their surroundings.. It comprises of a general care unit and a specialised Dementia/Alzheimer’s care programme and unit.. Some of the interventions utilised include, one to one care continuous behaviour monitoring every 30 minutes, reality therapy, memory clinics, validation Therapy and reminiscence therapy.. Through education, information, research and collaboration with others we aim to reduce stigma and promote excellence in all aspects of services for persons with dementia in Oaklodge.. Interventions used in programme:.. Instead of treating the person as a collection of symptoms and behaviours to be controlled, Oaklodge Nursing Home aims to see the person with dementia as an individual, rather than focusing on their illness or on abilities they may have lost.. Each Oaklodge Dementia resident is seen as an individual with unique qualities, abilities, interests, preferences and needs.. To care for people with dementia.. Staff at all levels receive ongoing training.. Offering a wide range of carefully considered activities, and encouraging people with dementia to take part in as many activities as possible.. Some of the interventions and systems utilised include:.. -.. One to one care.. Continuous behaviour monitoring every 30 minutes.. Reality Therapy.. Memory Clinics.. Validation Therapy.. Reminiscence Therapy.. Higher staff ratios.. Staff training.. Extra management.. External Expertise.. Orientation cues.. Staff experience.. One-to-one and one-to-group work.. Life Story Programme.. Optimal Building Design.. D.. ementia Care Programme Resources have also proved to be a great resource for people with dementia.. Games such as nostalgia, reminiscing and discover Ireland have encouraged them to look for tasks that they can still enjoy and manage.. Multi.. Sensory Tools such as parachute, crayons, hoops (small and large), co-ordination games, rings, shapes and figures, cushion football, plastic balls, bowls (plastic), cards (standard and jumbo size), pencils, shapes and figures, chess and draughts have allowed them to as far as possible maintain.. existing skills and can give the person pleasure while boosting their confidence.. Sensory and.. Physical stimulation such as clay, knitting equipment, mosaic art, shells, magazines for art, collection of art pictures have helped them retain their independence.. Suggested approaches for carers:.. Be a warm, calm, reassuring presence and offer support.. To make a person feel valued and important use positive language.. People with dementia are influenced by the language people use around them.. Avoid use of ‘negative’ language; such as shouldn’t, can’t or don’t.. They may  ...   be enormously helpful with identifying objects, especially in the bathroom.. A person may have great difficulty identifying a white toilet, sink and bath in a white bathroom.. Similarly, in table settings, use plates that have a high contrast with the tablecloth.. Pale colours can be used to de-emphasise what’s not important.. Floors are especially important.. Avoid bold, contrasting patterns, which can be confusing to a person who may have difficulties with depth perception.. dementia.. stir.. ac.. uk.. If a person with dementia is unsteady on their feet safety measures must be put in place.. Handrails in the hall and on the stairs, grab rails in the bathroom and toilet, and a toilet seat riser will help.. Put up pictures on doors indicating the functions of the various rooms in the house.. Pictures help with reality orientation.. For example, you might have a picture of a bed on the bedroom door or a dinner table on the dining room door.. When people are stressed or confused accidents are more likely to happen in the home.. From time to time.. it is inevitable that family members and carers will feel tired and irritable.. If possible take a few minutes break or else simply breathe deeply and slow down.. The person with dementia may pick up on a person's mood from their body language, even if they do not say anything.. Check your home for rugs, loose carpets and slippery floors or anything that may cause accidents.. These items can affect older people who may be unsteady on their feet.. For someone whose memory and sense of danger are impaired fires or heaters can be a danger.. Always fit a fixed fire guard while central heating and many electric fires can be regulated with a time switch.. Places to go for support.. Talk to your GP out about the type of dementia involved.. The symptoms and effects of Alzheimers is quite different to, for example, vascular dementia.. Call your local public health nurse and find out what day and respite services are available to you.. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is an enormous resource for families which are experiencing Alzheimers, both the person with Alzheimers and the carer.. Ireland's leading dementia specific service provider, it has more than 100 services across the country.. Contact your local branch of the Alzheimer’s Society or call the.. Alzheimer National Helpline for support and advice at 1800 341 341.. Do some research of your own.. Websites of organisations such as the Alzheimers Society (check out the UK one too at www.. alzheimers.. org.. uk), the DSIDC (.. ), and the Dementia Services Development Centre based at Stirling University (.. uk).. have a large amount of information and resources that can be very helpful..
