Today I visited Deal Centre for the Retired for the opening of the Norman Wisdom suite. The new suite will provide daycare and respite support for people with dementia.
Dementia is on the increase as people live longer. It can be kept at bay with stimulation, friendship and conversation. So the suite will really help by ensuring people are kept active and engaged. The longer people stay out of a care home the longer they live, the better quality of life they have and the more cost effective it is.
Prevention is so much better than cure and this suite will help to look after people and give them a much better quality of life.
