14 Retirement Living with Care Places
Registered with ARCO
Opened in 2005, Stanton Lodge is an innovative arrangement of 14 apartments for sale to couples affected by dementia. The first of their kind in the UK, they offer a choice for couples to remain together in a home of their own when one partner is living with dementia, whilst having access to the security, support and stimulation of MHA’s dementia specialist care services.
Situated alongside Fitzwarren House – a state-of-the-art dementia and nursing care home – the apartments are available to purchase and have been designed to promote both independence and security. Options include automatically activated gentle lighting in the hallway and bathroom to help reduce falls at night time. There is also an alarm notification to the carer or on-site staff if a resident leaves their apartment or remains up at night time outside their usual routine. Couples can decide how the system is programmed to suit their individual routines. Most importantly, MHA’s dementia care team are available 24 hours a day to provide specialist support.
“My parents are in their early 90s,” said one relative. “Dad has vascular dementia and Mum, although she’s his carer, can be quite forgetful. They both needed some help – and company. At Stanton Lodge, they get both. Mum is more relaxed than before. We hadn’t realised she was finding it so difficult caring for Dad. Now, she’s involved in all the activities, and has made new friends.”
At Stanton Lodge, we now provide 24-hour staffing on site. We deliver around the clock support and care tailored to individual needs.
