COVID-19 UPDATE* - Atlas remains fully operational, with some staff working remotely and all services following the latest UK government guidelines. We can be contacted via email or by calling 01626 774 799.
Our innovative model of dementia care works to keep members socially engaged and active so they maintain their independence, to manage some of the symptoms of the disease.
We provide a dementia day service
We are committed to providing a safe stimulating day service activity centre that is truly person-centered and works to improve quality of life.
Everyday, we will pick members up in our mini-bus and bring them to our day club where they will enjoy home-cooked meals and specialist care. By doing this, we offer dementia respite care to members’ families, allowing them time to return to work, do the shopping or just take a rest and recover from the strain of being a principle carer.
“I had my doubts about whether Sid would be happy to leave me for a few hours but he really took to the staff at The Ness Dementia Centre and now happily spends the whole day there. This has given me some precious respite.”
– Wife, Kerry
Specialist dementia therapy and activities
Each day we run specialist dementia therapies and activities, designed to be fun and stimulating. Some are to encourage social interaction, some are for simple enjoyment, and others such as cognitive stimulation, talking therapy or reminiscence therapy help to manage the symptoms associated with dementia.
Crucially, each day is adapted for each and every individual who spends the day with us, taking into account their personal interests, needs and requirements offering a truly person-centered model.
