We understand the needs of people living with dementia as they relate to our business or organisation from their perspective.
The myRyman Life model of dementia care was created with input from people living with dementia, those caring for people with dementia, and dementia care experts. This direct engagement was conducted through one-on-one interviews.
The results of this detailed research are woven throughout all four sections of myRyman Life. They are also being used to build an eLearning tool to provide continued learning and support to Ryman care teams.
On arrival at a Ryman care centre, residents or their representative meet with a registered nurse for a comprehensive assessment. This helps us create a detailed, person-centred care plan which is reviewed every 6 months. Primary care means that residents enjoy the same nursing and caregiving teams, which enables team members to learn individual needs and preferences. This helps to build trusting relationships and adds a natural, calming rhythm to the care we provide.
