Who we support

Everyone is on a journey

We understand that living with dementia is a journey that is unique to the individual and this journey needs unique care and support. Be it Alzheimers, vascular dementia or dementia with lewy bodies, our specialist dementia homes ensure that we look after the person, not the diagnosis.

The facts

850,000

people live with dementia in the UK

1 in 5

people with learning disabilities will develop dementia

Engaged and active

Our three nursing homes ensure that the care given to residents is straightforward, practical and above all, tailored to their individual needs. We take the time to get to know the people we support, to help them rebuild and retain connections to their family and friends, their community and their past. Everyone has a rich history of life experiences and we want to make the most of these in the care we provide. Take Bob at Humphry Repton House for example, who used to be a coal man. Staff and residents took the time to fill a sack with lumps of coal made out of paper, which he then delivered around the home. This kept him engaged and active, which we feel is crucial to living with dementia.
