Danes Lea is situated within the coastal town of Bridlington. It is a residential care home for older people, particularly those suffering from long term conditions including dementia. The home is situated on quiet residential street and has easy access to the town which has many facilities.
24 hour care and support is provided within a friendly, warm environment. The majority of the bedrooms have en suite facilities and residents and their families are encouraged to bring in personal possessions and have the rooms decorated to suit their personal taste.
Our qualified and experienced staff team provide care which is based on person centred planning and staff work closely with families to ensure that we have detailed life history and a comprehensive needs assessment which enables us to provide support which is individual to the person. We value people’s perspective and enable empowerment and choice.
We strive to enable people to remain at Danes Lea throughout all stages of dementia and would provide additional support should people have symptoms such as challenging behaviours or require end of life care.
Danes Lea has a structured programme of meaningful activities which all residents have the opportunity to participate in on a daily basis if they choose. The gardens which over look the sea are pleasant and trips outside of the home are organised.
We are able to offer respite care and short breaks depending upon bed availability.
Activities at Danes LeaThe Proudfoot Care Group is aware that lifestyle can potentially maximise your health as you age and we therefore promote physical health and exercise, diet and nutrition, cognitive activity and social engagement.
Research suggests that this approach can keep the body, brain healthy and potentially reduce the risk of cognitive decline. We see social stimulation as important as the other types of care provided. We feel the key to delivering high quality social stimulation is knowing the person well and what their previous interests included and understanding how dementia or other mental health problem impacts upon their ability to engage in activities.
Remaining cognitively and socially active can improve overall health and we acknowledge the significance of this within the Proudfoot Care Group. Meaningful, enjoyable activities are available to everyone within our homes as a group or individually. We arrange ongoing projects within the home, trips outside of the home and aim to organise whatever the residents indicate that they would like to try.
