Dementia Day Care Centre (DDCC) provides maintenance day care services to clients who have mild to severe dementia. The programme, in addition to client monitoring and assistance with activities of daily living, include managing challenging client behaviours.
This is accomplished through non-pharmacological methods by a trained dementia practitioner who conducts behaviour analysis on the client, and by guiding and training the care team and caregivers to apply appropriate care skills and techniques. The Centre adopts a person-centred care approach, looking beyond challenging behaviour to identify individual needs and provide quality care. It honours and celebrates people with dementia for the beautiful people they are.
The aim of the dementia day care programme is to slow down the deterioration of the client’s physical and mental functions and to enable the client to stay integrated in the community, thus delaying the need for institutionalisation.
DDCC offers structured daily programmes that are specifically designed for persons with dementia. In addition, case management and caregiver services (caregiver training, caregiver support group) are also provided as a value-added service.
