Specialist Hubs

The Ness Hubs provide therapy, information & advice

We are a nurse-led dementia service in Devon, with clinical specialists working closely with both our facilitators and families. The Ness are committed to providing safe, stimulating dementia day care centre hubs and activity centres that are truly person-centred and work to improve quality of life.

The Ness Hubs run clinical dementia day care centres everyday with centres in Teignmouth, Chudleigh and Exmouth, offering a combination of dementia respite care and active therapy.

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 day care centres which include 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 are to help manage the symptoms associated with dementia.

The Ness Group maintain our prices very competitively and each of our services have a specific cost.  However, we work closely with health & social care and have a contract across Devon that means many can get partial or total funding support from social care.  We will help you with accessing social care assessments and also applying for attendance allowance.  Please call or email to get the full pricing list.
