Improving the lives of families living with dementia
We understand that finding support for a loved one with dementia isn’t easy and choosing the right of level care can be a tough decision.
We are Ivy House, a day centre based in central Eastbourne providing care and support for people diagnosed with dementia. We welcome funded and self-funded visitors. We cater for all stages of dementia but with one single objective; to improve the quality of life for those with dementia and their families and carers. Our unique approach has proven results and, in many cases, home life can be continued for much longer than would otherwise be the case.
At the house, our dedicated team has worked hard to create a safe and nurturing environment that replicates typical home life as far as possible for all those who attend our sessions. We offer a varied (and lively!) activities programme that not only supports our approach to dementia therapy but also provides family members with respite from their often demanding caring roles.
With an emphasis on enjoyment and engagement, we create tailored support plans that incorporate individual’s interests, hobbies and normal routines with a focus on redeveloping many of their lost skills.
