Location

Situation

In Essex & in much of S E England generally, there is no specialised accommodation for younger people with onset dementia. For those for whom care at home is no longer possible, their only option is to seek care within an organisation providing elderly dementia care For people who are generally physically active, recently diagnosed but simply no longer able to care for themselves, an environment designed for a different age & ability group can be a fearful prospect.

Solution

The complex will inform, care & support people living with younger onset dementia addressing the need for a continuous care package in safe & familiar surroundings. In the 1st year of operation at least 12 younger adults with dementia will receive high quality long-term residential care in a supportive environment with an emphasis on mental & physical stimulation appropriate to individual needs & interests. This will result in significant improvements & slower regression in cognitive health.
