My aim for the people living at Wisteria House is to firstly reduce stress and anxiety, by creating a world that is calming, friendly, affectionate and familiar. Then promote choice and control over one’s life that adds meaning and purpose. Introducing activities, stimulation and independence to a level where individual’s can experience living positively with dementia.

' Specialising in Quality of Life for people living with a dementia'
Each person is treated as an equal, free to make their own choices in life, free to get up and go to bed when they like, wear what they like, eat where they like, join in with activities if they want to, have a shave today or not. We have no set visiting times and welcome and support families and friends. The staff team are very generous with affections and we like to have lots of fun moments too as you will see from our many photographs.
