Dementia Care Home in Glasgow

Springvale Care Home is a purpose-built care facility in Lennoxtown, near the port city of Glasgow. We take pride in the excellent specialist care services we offer, which include Residential, Dementia, Nursing, and Respite Care. Our luxury care home also offers a wide range of facilities, helping older people and those living with various health conditions live a full and enriching life.

Our care home located in East Dunbartonshire has its very own separate specialist Dementia Unit. Dementia is an umbrella term that encapsulates a number of conditions that affect people in different ways. There are varying levels of dementia, but all impact the cognitive abilities of those living with it.

What is Dementia Care?

In the early stages of Dementia, signs and symptoms may start with forgetting items and information or struggling to carry out daily tasks. These may include getting ready, cooking, going to appointments and just general navigation when out and about. These signs may be identified by yourself or other family members, and this could initiate conversations about whether full-time care such as a care home is the right choice.

At Springvale Care Home, we understand just how difficult it is to not only have these initial conversations but also to make the decision whether to move yourself or your loved one into a care home. Our Home Manager and the rest of the team are always on hand to answer any of your questions and queries and to help determine whether this is the right course of action for you. 

An initial assessment can also be arranged whereby we discuss the needs of the potential resident and to see whether our home meets their requirements. We fully understand that no two residents are the same, which is why no matter what care service we provide our residents at Springvale Care Home, they will receive a care plan that is completely tailored to their needs.

When a resident living with dementia moves into our home, our team does all they can to ensure that the admission process is stress-free. We are also committed to assisting our residents in adapting to their new surroundings. At Springvale Care home, we offer specialist Dementia Care on the first floor of our home, which has modern yet cosy en-suite bedrooms, specialised equipment and has been particularly designed to be a safe, calm and welcoming environment. 

The team of nurses on our Dementia Unit are highly-qualified to deal with all elements of dementia and nursing memory care, including identifying when further help and support is needed. Our staff receives ongoing training so that we are always up to date with the latest practices and therefore providing the very best care we can. 

We intend to help our residents maintain their independence as much as possible whilst assuring them that we are there whenever they need us. Like with our other types of specialised and elderly care, our dedicated team of nurses is available to our residents with dementia at all times of the day and no need is too big or small. Our nurses offer support of all kinds, from daily tasks such as getting dressed and assisting with mealtimes, to medical care and mental stimulation.

Our residents with dementia receive constant engagement and support, whether that be from the nurses who spend every day communicating with them or the Activities Team who take the time to learn about their interests. Our Activities Team works hard to incorporate our residents’ hobbies into our activities programme and also come up with inclusive and engaging dementia-friendly activities. Such activities include gardening, creating memory boxes, reminiscence, and arts and crafts

Located at the foot of the Campsie Fells, our residents benefit from stunning views of the hills and wildlife, and vast outdoor areas to explore. We also boast our very own private secure gardens which have seating for our residents to socialise, dine or just have some alone time reading a book. For our residents with dementia, having access to these outdoor spaces at their fingertips has real advantages, as they provide a calming and tranquil environment.
