Wirral units upgraded to provide extracare for dementia sufferers


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

A 10-unit extracare housing scheme at Moreton, in the Wirral, was recently opened by Dame Denise Platt, chair of the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI).

Cherry Tree House has been designed to help older people with dementia to remain independent for as long as possible. The scheme has been developed to include assistive technology, for example door exit sensors to ensure that residents maintain a high level of independent living.
