Blidworth dementia home

A NEW 13-bed care unit for people suffering with dementia is nearing completion on Mansfield Road in Blidworth.

Hatzfeld House Care Centre is expanding its provision for people under the age of 65 with early onset dementia by opening the facility in the grounds of its existing home. The unit, aimed at promoting semi-independent living, includes studio flats, a communal kitchen, dining area and a day care centre for a dementia support group and book club meetings.

Manager Jessica Poznanski says it will offer people the chance to live in their own flat but benefit from 24-hour care.
