Description
At Palliser House we specialise in dementia and hospital level care. We provide a peaceful, safe and comforting environment for our residents with a warm country feel. Our specially designed dementia friendly gardens and interior features have been created to provide stimulation and help tigger the senses. We understand and promote the idea that exposure to familiar memories through smell, sight, touch, taste and hearing can help promote a sense of well-being and calm for our residents.

July 2020 - Welcome to our new Nurse Manager Nicola Nowell. There are Dementia beds available for respite or permanent care
All enquires welcome – please call Nicola.
