QUESTIONS ABOUT CARE
Do you provide care for people with dementia?
Yes. At Hamberley Care Homes, our number one priority for residents living with dementia is to welcome, support and embrace their ever-changing needs.
Dementia can be extremely challenging, as well as unique to every person living with it. There will always be times where the symptoms of dementia can feel overwhelming and terrifying – thankfully, our Homemakers are trained to combat this, and having built up a credible and significant relationship with residents, they will be best suited to handle any situation.
We regularly organise activities and events with people from the local community, which means our residents can remain an important part of the world outside of their home. There are many clubs and workshops available for people living with dementia – for example, our Dementia-Friendly Cinema Club.
Our nurses include those who specialise in dementia and our homes include quiet, peaceful rooms around our care homes, built for relaxation. These areas are guaranteed to obtain minimal unwelcome stimuli so residents living with dementia can remain safe and undisturbed during their tranquil moments.
Does your team receive specialist dementia training?
Our person centred approach means we can guarantee a consistent care experience for people living with dementia.Our Homemakers don’t just provide care – they provide companionship. Our person centred care approach revolves around acknowledging individuality, and listening to our residents’ concerns.
The training we give to our staff helps them understand what living with dementia is like, for residents and their relatives too. Our Homemakers are attentive and empathetic to relatives, and they stay aware of the constantly changing emotions that come with caring for a loved one who lives with dementia.
Do you provide nursing care?
Every Hamberley Care Home can support people with nursing needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Hamberley nurses are experienced in caring for older people with complex health conditions. Taking a proactive approach to care for each individual reduces the risk of complications that may come with ageing, such as frailty and fall risk and failing eyesight and hearing.
Our nurses include those who specialise in a range of long-term complex care conditions, including dementia, rehabilitation following a stroke or neurological injury, and physical disabilities. At some of our homes, we provide specialist neurocare and neurorehabilitation for individuals following brain and spinal injuries.
Do you provide care for people with neurological conditions?
Yes. Our skilled nursing teams include those who specialise in a range of long-term complex care conditions, including dementia, rehabilitation following a stroke or neurological injury, and physical disabilities.
A growing number of our luxury care homes benefit from the addition of neurocare and neurorehabilitation suites. Dedicated to long-term care and therapeutic treatments for people living with a range of neurological conditions and symptoms, Hamberley's neurocare and neurorehabilitation suites allow adults with complex needs to receive expert support.
Do you provide respite care or short breaks?
Yes. Respite care or short breaks with Hamberley give people the opportunity to recover from an illness or operation or enjoy a holiday away from home with full support from our Homemakers, Nurses and Wellbeing colleagues.

- Accommodation in our spacious and beautiful en-suite rooms
