Solway suite, Silloth, Cumbria - Living well with Dementia   “The life you want, the care you need…” 

Living with dementia can become more difficult over time.   As the dementia progresses, you may find it increasingly difficult to manage by yourself or to continue to ensure the best quality of life at home, and there may come a time when moving into a care home is the best way forward.    Many people worry that moving into a care home will mean losing their independence or giving up the things they love to do. But at The Good Companions we help you to remain as active as possible and ensure you continue to enjoy a happy and fulfilled life.    Finding the home that is right for you and your needs is important. At The Good Companions, we have been caring for people living with dementia in our home for over 20 years and it is this experience that allows us to offer the best possible care and quality of life 

 Moving into a care home can be emotionally difficult for you and those that are close to you, but The Good Companions makes it easier, offering support and reassurance every step of the way.   “I have always enjoyed walking, so I was worried when I moved from my own home that I would miss going for walks. As it turned out they have a walking club, which I joined straight away and continue to enjoy going for walks”. ​     “Care that is right for you – because everyone’s an individual    

Because no one has the same journey or path through dementia, we tailor your support around your individual needs, preferences and wishes. We actively engage and involve you wherever possible, to continue making your own decisions about what you do and how you spend your time.   Experience has taught us that when people with dementia are encouraged to stay active, they benefit from improved physical and mental health and a sense of well-being. That’s why The Good Companions provide Activity based care, which helps you to remain as independent and active as possible.    With our support and encouragement, you can continue with familiar routines such as popping to the shops, going out for coffee or visiting the hairdressers. Many residents enjoy the sense of purpose that comes with keeping busy and we encourage everyone to participate in the life of the Good Companions,    

Our care and consideration is there for your family and friends, too. We understand that the people close to you may want to continue being involved in your daily care and we’ll do all we can to make sure everyone still feels included and welcomed whenever they visit.   “My family is the most important thing to me – seeing my granddaughter brightens my day. I have such wonderful memories of seaside holidays when my own children were small. Now of course they are grown up with families of their own. But they visit often. The staff always make them feel welcome, they even join in the activities and entertainment”    “It’s the people who really make the difference…”    At The Good Companions, when we employ new members of our care team, we’re just as interested in their caring, compassionate natures as we are in their qualifications and experience. After all, it’s those personal skills that are the difference between good and great care.    A designated carer will help you to move in and settle into life at your new home. They and the rest of the team will spend time getting to know you, finding out about your likes and dislikes and ensuring you receive care in the way that suits you best.    Every member of staff receives specialist dementia training to enable them to support best practice in dementia care. Staff are able provide empathetic and sensitive care and find simple and creative solutions to support residents to lead more fulfilled lives. We are committed to continually improving the care we provide for people living with dementia.   ​ 

Moving into The Good Companions doesn’t mean having to stop doing things you love. We’ll help you to continue with favourite hobbies and activities and give you plenty of opportunity to try new things too, if you wish.   The Good Companions have 2 Activity Coordinators who organises a wide variety of individual and group activities, entertainment and excursions. These are tailored around residents’ abilities, interests and personalities so there’s always something for everyone. Popular activities include reminiscing, singing, dancing, baking, floor games and quizzes. Events might include film nights in our cinema room, dances, pampering sessions. You’ll also be able to join residents clubs such as those for gardening, cinema and arts and crafts    The Good Companions are pro-active and lively members of the community and often play host to events such as fetes and local competitions. Visits from entertainers, schools and local choir and music clubs are always welcomed and residents benefit when we have visits from various animal visits.    We arrange excursions and entertainment away from the home. These include meals out, visits to local places of interest. As part of the activities we have a “make a wish” were we try to fulfil residents wishes wherever possible.     “My wife and I loved to go dancing. The home arranged and invited my wife to attend one of our in house parties, we had such a good night dancing to the singer. It’s like we were back in our younger days out dancing and it has brought back some good memories for both of us”.    


"We have a very experienced, knowledgeable team who strive to provide the highest quality service possible".
