We aim to help people live as independently as possible in our homes

Designed by experts

Our immediate surroundings can have a huge impact on our quality of life, particularly when trying to make sense of the world around us. That's why we work with academic partners and some of the leaders in the architectural and design industries to create care home environments that help people living with dementia to live as independent and stress-free a life as possible. 

Our homes are built to the latest dementia standards and designed to enhance the quality of life for every resident, whatever their needs. The Care UK design team is passionate about creating dementia environments which balance colour schemes, wayfinding and points of interest to create a safe, homely and easily understood environment.

The homes are divided into smaller suites on each floor to create a homely atmosphere. This also helps to keep the hustle and bustle to a minimum, which is particularly important for residents who are living with dementia.  

A personal touch

 

Residents are welcome to personalise their room with familiar furniture, pictures and other belongings. Outside each room is a memory box which residents can fill with special items, these also help us get to know you and your whole family.

We will work with you to customise your environment in a way that protects personal identity, supports you to make the most of your capabilities and helps you to live as independently as possible.
