Dementia

Dementia is a general term which covers many different brain disorders, and goes beyond what might be expected due to normal aging. With dementia many areas of a person’s brain can be affected. They can have problems with their memory, have a reduced attention span and have problems with communication. They may experience disorientation; such as not knowing which day of the week it is, where they are or who people are.

Convalescence

Convalescence care allows for someone who was in hospital to come to the care home for a period of time to allow them to fully recover from their illness.

Respite

Respite care is a temporary stay which allows you and your carers to have a break, or to allow you to evaluate a home before deciding if you want to move in permanently.
