North Warwickshire development

Posted on June 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The finishing touches are being completed on the St Joseph¹s care home for frail older people, specialising in caring for older people with dementia. The overall vision of this major project by Father Hudson¹s Society is for the new home to develop as a community resource, offering advice and support to people who may be affected by the issues associated with ageing. The society says north Warwickshire will see an increase in the percentage of population over the age of 75 years, which will be three times higher than the national average. Research has demonstrated that the number of people with dementia requiring care within a care setting will increase sharply during the next decade. Twenty per cent of all people over the age of 80 have a form of dementia. With people living well into their 80s the demand for care will increase.
