Specialist dementia schemes

We can arrange for you to be referred for a needs assessment by a Social Services Integrated Care team to see if you meet the specific criteria for specialist care.

Following this, we will advise you if you meet the criteria for specialist care. If you are eligible, you will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as soon as a suitable vacancy becomes available.

The specialist dementia housing offers flexible care for those who need it most, with 24-hour support on hand from experienced social care and health teams.

The service provides flexible support packages include help with personal care, medication, preparing meals, cleaning and laundry.

Schemes include:

  • Portland House, Newton-le-Willows – an award-winning dementia scheme offering flexible and comfortable care to support you to maintain an independent lifestyle
  • Carter House, St. Helens – a 15-apartment dementia scheme designed to give you the specialist care and support you need

Please contact us if you feel you or a family member would benefit from additional support.
