Leading the way for Wales in the provision of modern accommodation and services matched to the needs of a younger community of people. A vibrant place, offering a real alternative to traditional care in an older person’s dementia care home.
The Welsh Government’s ‘National Dementia Vision for Wales’ published in 2011, estimated that by 2021 the number of people with dementia across Wales will increase by 31% and by as much as 44% in some rural areas. There is a clear need for dementia care provision in Wales.
As well as fitting with national strategy, our proposal follows discussions between the Seren Group, Aneurin Bevan Health Board and the Alzheimer’s Society which highlighted the lack of existing provision for younger people with dementia, and responds to specific requests from the Young People with Dementia forum.
