Four Seasons Health Care
The Dementia Care Framework from Four Seasons has pioneered investment and innovation in dementia care
In 2017, Active Minds began a partnership with Four Seasons Health Care, the UK’s largest independent care provider and an industry leader in dementia care.
The Dementia Care Framework from Four Seasons Health Care has pioneered investment and innovation in dementia care to educate both staff and families and continue to improve the experience for those living with dementia.
This project will put ‘activities’ in the spotlight, exploring how specialised products for people living with dementia, will enhance experiences and support those living with cognitive, dexterity and visual challenges to remain engaged and active.
The partnership between Active Minds and Four Seasons will operate on two levels. Initially, the award winning Complete Kit of activity products will be rolled out to over 300 Four Seasons care homes under the Dementia Care Framework. Initial impacts from the first region of homes have already been outstanding.
Using detailed feedback and input from all locations, Active Minds and Four Seasons have additional plans to collaborate on the development of exciting new products which will deliver huge benefits not only to Four Seasons residents, but to thousands of people in the UK living with dementia.
With the right support the person with dementia can enjoy a good life experience and the effects of dementia progression may be slowed. That is what our Dementia Care Framework is designed to achieve. Activities can play an important part in giving people a good experience and making them happy, so the Active Minds specialist products are a good fit.Dr Claire Royston, Group Medical Director at Four Seasons Health Care
