Ramsey Unit is an assessment unit for patients with an organic illness, such as Dementia.

It is a unit for adults based in Furness General Hospital which can take admissions from across the county.

The unit provides a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team based assessment and treatment for people suffering from mental health problems when they are unable to remain in their own environment, delivering an individual care and treatment plan in a safe supported environment affording privacy and dignity.

The overall goal is to re-establish the person's optimum independence and make sure that there is provision of support on discharge.

Feedback from a carer:

"We were impressed with the clean, light, airy and suitable environment. The staff worked as a team. Each one appeared to know what individual skills were needed to do their job. There was always a smile and a warm welcome when we visited and staff were interested in listening about what we knew about the service user's past life. This information helps you understand the individual because we are all different."
