Knightswood opens new advanced dementia support centre

A new support centre for those living with advanced dementia has been opened in the Dengie.

The unique day care service at Knightswood in Asheldham cares for up to six clients a day allowing carers to engage almost one-to-one.

Knightswood has always supported those living with dementia but as clients’ needs increase, it was evident those with advanced dementia needed more one-to-one care in a different setting.

The extension to the main day care centre, Me, Myself and I (MM&I), includes a sensory room and an activities room as well as games such as hockey and hoopla.
