The Japara approach to dementia support
Life doesn’t stop when dementia starts. This simple philosophy sits at the heart of our approach to dementia care.
At Japara, we believe in focusing on ability rather than disability. We never forget that we’re caring for people, and everything about a person is important – from the emotional and spiritual through to their physical wellbeing.
Our Dementia Champions have professional knowledge, as well as an interest and passion for the highest level of dementia support. They are the go-to contact in providing support and advice to other staff members, and identifying opportunities to further improve the quality of life for residents living with dementia. Some of our residences also have specialist dementia spaces for continuation of care and behavioural support as an individual’s condition changes along with their needs.
As with every part of Japara, our understanding and our approach to caring for people with dementia is all about respect.
