Day Respite Care at Atlas

“I had so little understanding about dementia and I was worried to leave my husband but he really took to the staff at The Ness and came home more engaged and less confused. This time has given me some precious respite.”

Why The Ness Hubs

The approach we take can slow the impact of the illness and is designed to maintain an individual’s cognitive function, while providing an engaging, social experience.

Our specialist facilitators, who run each session, have years of experience and work compassionately with both families and professionals.

Each day we run specialist dementia therapies and activities, designed to be fun and stimulating. Some are to encourage social interaction, some are for simple enjoyment, and others such as cognitive stimulation, talking therapy or reminiscence therapy help to manage the symptoms associated with dementia.

Combination of treatment & information

Specialist days – Available from as little as £38 and can be booked as full or half days, as many times a week as necessary. Transport support offered.

Courses – We provide teaching and training for professionals & families to learn about dementia, to become experts at supporting families and individuals, and to learn about CST.

Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) – These are targeted 2.5 hour sessions for those with mild to moderate memory loss, designed to maintain your memory and slow cognitive deterioration.

Support & information for families – We provide courses for families, offering practical tips on coping with some of the symptoms and helping to build resilience. We also offer advice on care homes and other specialist services.
