    Dementia Unit (Wordsworth & Bronte Wards)

    The Dementia Units will deliver a full range of service functions for assessment within a modern person-centred environment for people with moderate to severe dementia.

    The ultimate aim of this service is to provide care which will enable a person to live their life to their full potential in the most appropriate environment. This will be achieved through the provision of a safe therapeutic environment for the assessment and treatment of people with moderate to severe dementias.
