We work with Dementia Care Matters to implement the highest standards of care available in Ireland, tailored to the specific needs of people living with dementia and their families. There are specialist dementia care households in both Moorehall Lodge Ardee and Moorehall Lodge Drogheda. Here, we provide specialist care to include activities for residents with dementia-related conditions.
We are Ireland’s first accredited Butterfly Centre. This approach to care focuses on emotions and on the fact that feelings matter most. It is a truly person centred approach that allows people to be themselves. This approach to care means fully understanding our residents and their life experiences so that we can understand their behaviours and feelings towards everyday life in Moorehall. It supports the full living experience of our residents. Empathy is at the heart the Butterfly approach to care. The resident and how they are feeling and responding to situations needs to be at the heart of care rather than dealing with specific task based activities. It’s about our team connecting with residents and facilitating them to control their own day. This can have a huge impact on quality of life for those with dementia.
Our specialist dementia care extends through our range of services at Drogheda and Ardee. We all live in the moment – moments matter.
