What is Residential Dementia Care?

Dementia can result in a change to the way in which you perceive the world.

Dementia can affect transformations to the way you remember, feel, behave and communicate. As a result, there may come a time when your loved one is finding it increasingly difficult to live independently at home even with support from professional carers, family or friends. Residential Dementia care offers a secure environment where loved ones can experience the well-being and fulfilment that reflects their own choices, with fully-trained staff always on hand 24 hours a day to offer care and assistance when needed.

Key Information

We accept both self-funded and state-funded residents. However, Local Authority funding often do not cover the full care costs of the care home. This may well mean a third party will need to provide top-up funding to cover the full costs.  Please see our leaflet on funding your care with us. Age UK also produce a factsheet on paying for residential care.
