Residential Dementia (EMD)

What do we mean by residential dementia (EMD) care?

Residential dementia care, also known as EMD care, is a type of long-term care that provides specialized support and assistance to individuals who have been diagnosed with dementia. EMD care is designed to provide a safe and secure environment that meets the unique needs of individuals with dementia, including memory loss, behavioural changes, and other cognitive impairments.

EMD care is provided in specialised units designed to be secure to prevent individuals from wandering or getting lost and the care is tailored to the individual’s specific type and stage of dementia and may include a range of services, such as:

Personal care: assistance with personal care activities, such as bathing, dressing, and toileting. Care Assistants work closely with the individual to provide personalized care that respects their dignity and privacy.

Medication management: specialised medication management services to ensure that the individual is taking their medications as prescribed and to manage any side effects or interactions.

Nutrition and meal services: meals and snacks to individuals, taking into consideration any dietary restrictions or preferences. Care Assistants may also help with eating if needed.

Social and recreational activities: opportunities for socialisation and engagement in recreational activities that are tailored to the individual’s cognitive abilities. These activities are designed to promote social connections and mental stimulation.
