Dementia Care Matters

We are pleased to have been chosen as one the homes chosen by North Somerset Council to participate in the Dementia Care Matters program.

Dementia is a huge issue affecting older people nationally. The prevalence of this condition is predicted to continue to grow and North Somerset has a particularly large elderly population.

Sheila Smith, director of people and communities at North Somerset Council, said: “We see ensuring the care of the elderly and those with dementia as a priority, a priority that we are keen to respond to. We will continue to challenge all areas of the health and social care community to support people with dementia well in a dignified and compassionate way that meets their needs and makes individuals and families feel their loved ones are cared for well in whatever setting they come into contact with.
