We are not registered with the RQIA to admit anyone who has late onset dementia where they may be a risk to themselves or to others. Our environment is open so as our residents are free to come and go and enjoy the surroundings and we are unable to provide close supervision or secure units like a dementia unit would. Early onset or mild dementia which affects short term memory is within our scope or practice but all residents wishing to come into the home has to undergo a pre admission assessment from a qualified nurse first so as we can determine weather we can fully meet a persons needs prior to any decision to admit is made.
