About Breede Gardens
Breede Gardens offers your loved ones, living with dementia, a home-like setting that encompasses everyday activities to keep their mind, spirit and body active while providing expert care, a secure and beautiful environment and valuable understanding for happy and productive living.
Our focus on each resident as a unique person, enables us to build caring and meaningful relationships between our Care Assistants, residents and their families.
Our Care Assistants provide support in activities of daily living so that life can continue as it always has with individualized adaptations to remove the stress created through illness.
Residents are encouraged to take part in a daily routine which creates normal activities including, cooking, cleaning and laundry - these assist with triggering memories of life at home.
Additional to this we partner with people that can run exercise, music, religious, social and art programmes.
