Dementia

Statistics inform us that the number of older people in the Scottish Borders is going to dramatically increase. Unfortunately, the number of Borderers suffering from Dementia will increase significantly.

Dementia is a complex illness that has a dramatic impact on the individual and their family.

  • BCS are committed to providing high quality care and support to people with dementia, and their carers, so they can remain in their home setting.
  • BCS ensure that care and support staff have appropriate training to provide the specialised care & support required for this complex disease which manifests itself in different ways from person to person.
  • BCS can provide care at reasonable cost or if relevant through the client's personal choice of a Direct Payment and in line with the person's existing care/support plan.
