Dementia Care Elderly Frail
Dementia is the most common mental illness in older people leading to impaired memory loss.
Prospect House is designed to encourage and stimulate the needs of those with dementia related illness in a supportive environment.
Respite care is a short term care available at all our homes and is designed to give carers a much deserved break with the knowledge that their loved one is being well cared for. (You may be entitled to financial assistance from the Local Authority and your Social Worker or our Manager, will be able to guide you in the right direction).
