MHA is recognised as being at the forefront of dementia care. It has built a reputation for providing high quality care and support that begins with the need of each individual.
One in five people over the age of 80 experience the symptoms of dementia. The effects of dementia can be distressing for the person concerned and their family and friends. It can cause changes in character and behaviour, as well as affecting memory, speech and understanding.
Seeing each person as a unique individual
MHA aims to ease the symptoms of dementia with understanding and expertise, addressing spiritual and physical needs with reassurance and practical steps.
Our focus on individual needs and support helps all our older residents achieve interesting and satisfying lives. The specialist dementia care that we continue to develop has been shown to improve well-being and continues to meet the changing needs of older people.
