The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. This specialist approach extends to the care provided at Ferfoot, where dedicated staff work closely with residents and their loved ones to create a Life Story for each resident, helping to ensure that care and activities take into account each person’s individual life experience.
