The building was converted to care for residents with dementia-type illnesses in April 2010 and is now considered to be at the forefront of dementia care provision. Roselea House has 20 large single occupancy en-suite rooms all with showers in a single-storey building.

During the planning of the refurbishment advice was taken from Stirling University Dementia Services Development Centre and incorporated into the interior design features to provide solutions for people with dementia. Some of the features are:

  • Dementia signposting, including 3D tactile signposting
  • Individual memory boxes on bedroom doors
  • 3D tactile memory murals
  • Non-intrusive call bell system with sensory-activated lighting in bedrooms

Our principal aim was to provide a home with a real family atmosphere for all our residents coupled with respect for their privacy, individual rights, independence, and freedom of choice.

A dedicated team is led by the home manager, Hazel Dunsmuir, who is a Registered Nurse and an accredited dementia care trainer. Hazel has also undertaken training with the Alzheimer's Society of Great Britain. All staff undergo specialist training in order to provide sensitive and appropriate care.

Using a "person centred" approach, based on leading theory in current dementia care practice, residents will receive high levels of attention and supervision based on their individual needs and wishes.
