Research evaluations

To mark Dementia Awareness Week, we've published evaluations of 2 of our schemes that provide specialist care for people living with dementia.

Cherry Tree

A specialist dementia extra care scheme in Wirral providing housing, care and support for up to 10 residents, the ethos of Cherry Tree is centred on promoting independent living. The scheme provides an effective alternative to residential care, ensuring that the impact of dementia is minimised as far as possible and residents can continue to live independently.

Water Mill Dementia Day Centre

Attached to a residential care home for people living with dementia, Water Mill Dementia Day Centre is an innovative service which provides support for people with moderate and advanced dementia. In the current climate, where many day centres have closed or are under threat, Water Mill demonstrates how this type of service can achieve positive outcomes for people with dementia, their families and commissioners.
