Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
It’s never easy when someone in your family has dementia and caring for them inevitably becomes a full time job.

Our specialist Dementia Unit is designed to stimulate their minds and help them live with dignity in a safe, caring environment.

The open plan lounge and dining room has a lovely home like feeling which opens onto a secure outdoor dining area and garden. This allows our residents the freedom to enjoy being outdoors when the mood suits without the risk of them wandering off.
