People with dementia often forget to look after themselves as well as they did before they developed the disease. They may also become less aware of dangers and hazards around them. This is why extra support is important. By understanding the individual, their routine, their likes, dislikes, work history hobbies and social interests our team will develop an individualised care plan for them. This will aim to assist the person to remain as independent as possible and live well whilst maintaining their dignity and quality of life.
