Caroline Ignatius - Founder
My vision, is to create a specialist Dementia Nursing Home in Peterborough, which will be unique in it’s values, the way it operates, the facilities it offers and the way it treats & protects both residents and it’s staff.
My mum Devika is the inspiration behind what I am trying to achieve and her 12 year journey with Dementia has taught me so much.
It’s come from many years of frustration with the care system and the way that some organisations are run. It’s time to put all of my skills, experiences and energy into improving the lives of people living with Dementia, just like my beautiful mum.
They deserve so much better and no matter how long this takes, I will make it happen. I truly believe I can play a part in real change.
Dementia Day Centres
We have identified a need for a day centre services, designed for people living with Dementia that may require personal care and/or behavioural assistance now or in the near future.
Day centres make an important contribution to community awareness by acting as a preventative measure for problems caused by lack of social contact and stimuli. When set up correctly, they allow older people to continue to lead an independent life by creating opportunities for choice, control, independence through various activities that encourage self-esteem and self-fulfilment.
We aim to help people with Dementia stay living happily at home, for as long as possible and we plan to do this by providing -
A safe, friendly & understanding environment
Physical activities to suit personal capabilities
Mentally stimulating and purposeful activities
Cognitive stimulation therapy
Lunch and refreshments
Devika Care Company - Future Project
