A closer look at Rutland Manor

Rutland Manor has themed areas with bright colours to enhance peoples’ moods and provide visual impact and distraction.  All our nurses and carers are trained to a high standard in using effective communication to de-escalate what can at times appear challenging situations.  They strive to improve the quality of life for the person and create opportunities for residents to express their own identity.

Residents are actively encouraged to move around the home as they wish and to keep themselves busy with day to day activities that stimulate their mind and help them feel valued as people.  We employ 2 activities co-ordinators dedicated to tailoring activities that promoting independence, either one to one or in considered group therapy.   We focus on ability rather than weakness, aiming to retain key skills for as long as possible.

Dementia patients are often a forgotten group of society, excluded from many social situations.  But at Rutland Manor we strive to make our residents’ dementia journey a pleasant one.  We use a person-centred approach for all our care; ensuring that the individual is always at the centre of our thoughts and where necessary, making best interest decisions for  people that are based on extensive research of the person’s own values system.

We are praised by external health and social care professionals – the PCT, Consultant Psychiatrist and G.Ps for our positive approach towards using non-pharmacological means as a first line to modify behaviours.  We use very little anti-psychotic medications and our nursing staff are proactive in requesting a G.P to stop medication when it is no longer required or considered effective.


We recognise the enormous importance of good nutrition for enhancing the health and overall well being of people with dementia.  To promote this we have protected mealtimes, free from unnecessary interruption, in our carefully designed dining room.  We hold two sittings at each meal to allow people time to relax, to exercise their choice and give more assistance where needed.  Snacks and drinks are provided during the day and night and we celebrate special events throughout the year with themed dinner parties.


We value the contribution and support from families and friends and invite you to be actively involved with events at the home, in any way you choose.  We work with all our residents’ families to offer support and to help them understand the progression of dementia and how it is affecting their loved one. 


We believe people shouldn’t stop enjoying life when they are diagnosed with dementia or come to live in a nursing home and through our ‘treasured memories’ work we capture how the person’s life continues positively into their next chapter.
