EMI (Elderly Mentally Infirm)
homes offer specialist care for people with dementia and other mental health related problems. Residents may be physically fit, but require a degree of specialist support from appropriately trained staff.
Our EMI homesare purpose built using the latest research from top specialists. They offer a safe and secure environment to enable residents to find their way around with ease, comfort and independence. Each resident has a personal carer who is the main point of contact for friends and relatives. All employees in the home are trained in EMI related conditions. (For more information click on our section entitled Dementia Care).
If you are caring for an elderly person at home and need a break, we offer short term care. Some homes set aside rooms for this purpose allowing breaks to be pre-booked. Others will be able to offer a room when a vacancy occurs.

Ideally care would be free regardless of individual needs or financial background. Unfortunately, in reality things are a little less straightforward, with funding based on individual circumstances.
We can give you advice on how this affects you. Please contact your local home manager who will be happy to talk you through the process and send you some information.
