Work starts at Pendine Park
Work has started on a £4m dementia care centre being built by the Pendine Park care organisation at its main site in Wrexham, North Wales.
It is due to open next year and heralds a new approach to the way people with dementia are looked after. The new centre, to be called Bodlondeb (place of contentment), will look after 64 people with dementia who need day care, respite care or residential services.
It will be divided into eight small, family-like units so that the residents receive as much individual care and attention as possible while benefiting from the back-up of a larger organisation.
The concept has been developed in conjunction with academic experts from Bangor University, the Alzheimer’s Society and other specialist organisations.
The centre is being built by Wrexham-based Rofft Developments and has been designed by the Wynn Rogers Partnership in Denbigh. Proprietor Mari
