Early Onset Dementia

Early Onset Dementia Service for people in Wirrral

What does it do?

We've witnessed a growth in the number of local people under the age of 65 being diagnosed with dementia.  To support these people and their families, we are able to offer bespoke personal care and support packages at home, out in the community or from within the Bradbury Wing at the Devonshire Resource Centre.

From the Bradbury Wing, purpose-built to cater to the needs of younger people living with dementia, we provide a modern, safe, and well-equipped setting where people can explore, relax, learn and connect with experienced, trained staff and function to the very best of their ability in a non-judgemental setting.

This Centre is unique on the Wirral, and promotes independence, inclusion and actively encourages younger people living with dementia to retain their life skills. Staff will facilitate clients to pursue their hobbies or even try new ones.  People can spend the day at the Bradbury Wing, or combine time at the Bradbury Wing with support from a staff member out in the community (for example, going shopping, swimming, fishing or another taking part in another pastime).  For continuity of care, staff are also able to provide help and support at home.

We use touchscreen interactive cognitive stimulation therapy software within the Bradbury Wing to promote reminiscence and recall and to help maintain functional skills.

Continual assessments are conducted by our Senior Care Co-ordinator, to ensure clients continue to receive the right help and support for them.
