Bringing individuals back into the heart of the community

We are a social mission led company, committed to placing the individual living with dementia back at the heart of the community. We believe that at all stages of the disease you should be able to maintain social connections, maintain self-esteem and continue to live positively.

Our unique Ness model transformed a Dutch concept called dementia meeting centres and combined this with our clinical expertise and specialist knowledge to create therapeutic hubs designed to treat the disease, support families and maintain individuals in their community.  The Ness creates spaces that value and encourages individuals regardless of their disability.
