Our Housing-with-Care schemes for older people and those with dementia provide a relaxing and friendly atmosphere where the residents can feel secure and cared for. These schemes provide tailored care and support to residents, whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle through social activities, exercise and other activities agreed with the residents.
Residents are encouraged, where possible, to remain in control of their affairs, maintaining their independence for as long as possible.
For those with dementia we aim to prolong our residents’ cognitive and mental skills through a range of daily activities, which enable them to exercise their minds and bodies. This not only engages them but also provides an ideal opportunity for each resident to socialise. FOLD Housing understands that it is not only the person with dementia that is affected by this condition; it’s their family, friends and carers as well. We offer support as needed while the resident progresses through the dementia condition.
Anam Cara and Cherryfield are registered designated centres for the older people with HIQA who carry out announced and unannounced inspections, Anam Cara and Cherryfield work in partnership with the HSE and the service level arrangement is approved on an annual basis.
