Reconnect - Specialist Dementia Care
Reconnect is a ground-breaking new approach to dementia care. Developed by clinicians at Orchard Care Homes, with a combined experience spanning over 60 years, this pioneering plan is being implemented in specially adapted residential homes UK wide.
At the core of the concept is the individual. This plan has been specifically designed to maintain independence, personality and family connections. Underlying the concept are research studies that prove the impact surroundings and communication have on mental health and wellbeing.
Reconnect aims to reduce reliance on medication and maintain a quality of life for an extended period via a person-centred, communication orientated approach. Integral to this concept are those who implement the care plan, the dementia therapists in the homes. Specially adapted and designed residential homes will host several lounges of up to six residents with a dedicated team of dementia therapists and nurses.
