Based around our Enabling Household™, our dementia specialist households in Perth, Albany and Mandurah provide an evidence based environment that seeks to maximise wellbeing in the person living with dementia. Providing a wide range of meaningful activities based on the person’s strengths, identity and interests, the houses provide meaningful engagement, stimulation and friendship in specially designed dementia enabling environments.
Our houses provide the only Eden Alternative™ registered day centre environments in Western Australia and give the family a short break while providing an enriching experience for the person living with dementia.
