There are issues with respect to making use of the therapy as careproviders do not resist the changes (Gee, Thompson and Miller, 2017). Different people havediverse set of perception that are carried out by them some may have positive and some will benegative. In this context, it is important that proper focus should be made in which patient withdementia are delivered with adequate services so that they will be able to make sure that patientswill adopt the change effectively and efficiently.BACKGROUNDThis report is based on the preparation of the undertaking plan that is the adoption ofsensory therapy for people suffering from Dementia, a mental disease. This illness is caused bysome brain disease or injury that has happened to the brain in the past. The common symptomsare memory disorders, changes in personality and anosmic reasoning. In order to get rid of this
disease, a form of occupational therapy is used, namely, sensory therapy that contains somespecial exercise which improves the sense of touch, balance, and presence of body parts whichdirectly helps in the recovery from Dementia. These senses are classified into three parts- tactile,vestibular and proprioceptive. This medical care stimulates the visual, auditory, olfactory,gustatory and tactile senses within the patient and helps them in evoking positive feelings. Otherthan Dementia, this therapy also used to treat the condition of Alzheimer's. Autism, brain injuriesand chronic pain (Dewing and Dijk, 2016).The present report is based on Highgate care homewho provide care to older people and younger adult who suffer from disability. Along with thisthey provide complex care to people who suffer from dementia diseases.This entity is providingthe medical services to the persons having physical or mental problems.Along with this there aresome changes which need to make in health care home related to providing services to peoplewho suffer from memory loss and other physical disability. Here it is important to adopt newtechnologies and provide training facility to services provider so that they can easily providesensory therapy practices to people who are suffering from dementia. Due to lack of knowledgerelated to the diseases from which services user are suffering such as Dementia lead to provideuseless treatment.. Therefore, it is important to provide knowledge and training to service user sothat they can effectively provide the treatment (Zubrycki and Granosik, 2016,). This changesneed to implement at the Highgate care home.PROBLEMS AND OPPORTUNITIESProblems:InHighgate care home, there are many issues are identified. It is observed that thepatients that are being treated in the organization are not much safe with the services that arebeen provided to them and advance technology are not used in respect to provide treatment . Themajor challenge is also of the lack of awareness of the Dementia disease among the people(Worthington and et.al, 2017).For dementia diseases it is important to provide proper care and treatment. If people whoare suffering from these diseases are not provided care then they may suffer from negativefeeling and depression and anxiety. In Highgate care home people should effectively use sensorytherapy practices so that service user can overcome from their diseases. Dementia is a result ofimpaired cognition which is result of brain damage. Therefore, it is possible that patient withdementia may not able to recognise services provider and may be unable to understand that whytherapy is applied on them (Kratz, Kerr and Porter, 2017). Due to this reason patient may
become aggressive and refuse to work with service provider. Therefore, it is important for thehealthcare practitioner to build good therapeutic rapport with them.Opportunities:the issues associated with the various requirements can be resolved by gettingthese needs in the services provided by the Highgate care home.They are giving to the patientsand time gap should also be considered by them. They should also need to show leniencytowards the visits of the family members of the patients and should treat them nicely (Rock andet.al, 2016). Innovations in the field of health care will also assist the medical serviceseffectively and hence, proper facilities will be provided to the patients.It is important to providetreatment to patient with proper care so that negative feeling not get appear in their mind andthey not get depressed. Through focusing on maintaining strengthen and promoting wellness ofcare provider, service user of Highgate care home can easily enrich lives of the person withdementia and by promoting maximal performance in preferred activities (Gee, Thompson andMiller, 2017). Along with this, practitioner can determine the things which is working well in thedaily routine of the person with dementia and assist to an individual for making sure that personskill can be maintained for a long time as possible. Furthermore, it is possible that patient withdementia may not able to recognise services provider and may be unable to understand that whytherapy is applied on them. Due to this reason patient may become aggressive and refuse to workwith service provider. Therefore, it is important for the healthcare practitioner to build goodtherapeutic rapport with them.JUSTIFICATIONThe disease, 'dementia' is harming a major population range and needs to be treated in aneffective manner.
