Who is the Service For?
Our services are for people who have dementia which affects them in differeing ways, some to such an extent that they are no longer capable of living at home on their own, even with family support.
What can it Provide?
Our services provide good levels of staff support in high quality community based care home accommodation. We believe that we provide a real home where the person and their family can feel involved, respected and safe and where he or she feels that they can still make a contribution to society and be treated with dignity.
Where is it Provided?
Our older people dementia care home services are provided throughout Glasgow and we operate in the Drumchapel, Gorbals, Govanhill, Maryhill and Springbank areas of Glasgow.
How can I Request these Services?
Our services can be accessed through contacting the Area Manager or Project Manager of the Project directly for information- or by contacting the Social Work Department and requesting an assessment of needs. In most instances, and especially where social work funding is required, the Social Work Department will have to carry out an assessment of the person to ascertain their suitability for the service.
Is There a Charge?
There is a charge. The charge will vary from centre to centre. The Social Work Department will meet most of the cost and clients are required to make a contribution. This will be fully explained by the Manager prior to a placement being offered.
How Long Will I Have to Wait?
This is dependent on various factors, including availability of places. If the service does have a vacancy then as soon as the Social Worker involved carries out the various assessments and you are happy to move into the service, then you can do so.
