Maple 1, The Cavell Centre,(In-patient services)

What does it do?

Maple 1 is a 16-bed purpose-built dementia care assessment ward for people who live
with or suffer from memory related problems. We aim to provide holistic
person-centred care - therefore, the whole of the multidisciplinary team
is involved in the assessment process with input from psychiatric and
general nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, consultant
psychiatrists and medical staff.

We have close links with support services such as diabetic nurses, tissue viability service and
dieticians to name but a few. Nursing staff carry out ongoing assessment
and treatment, including reminiscence, divisional and physical
activities As there are many factors including physical health that
influence a person's cognitive ability.

The ward aims to
complete the assessment process within four-12 weeks and the purpose is
to establish the cognitive, physical and self-help ability with a view
to planning an effective aftercare package. This may mean a return home
with support but can also mean transfer to a residential or nursing

The aftercare package includes various types of community
based staff therefore it is important for us to liaise closely with
them, as well as with the families / carers.
