Razvan said: “To ensure all residents and their family are involved at every step, the team at Heathlands House create individual life story books for each resident detailing their likes, dislikes, past careers, and hobbies which is then used as the base for an individually tailored care plan.

“The team support residents to build and maintain strong relationships with the wider community, organising events including talks from local historians and ‘knit and natter’ groups.

“The home also has fortnightly visits from a local music therapist, understanding the benefits music can have for residents living with dementia such as maintaining language and speech, boosting wellbeing and creating a sense of nostalgia.”
