Advice On Right Care Home Hello I am a nurse in mental healtha and I would appreciate any help someone could give me. I work with a gentleman who is 51 years and has been diagnosed with early onset dementia (alzheimers). The team are pushing for him to go into a care home with people at later stages than him and of 30-40 years older. This gentleman has some capacity and able to do some tasks still. He communicates with staff, however, is unable to write, his hygiene is poor, however care dress himeself. Going back home with a care package is not appropriate for him but I would like to find the right place for him with people of similar stages and ages to him. He has 1 carer who visits every other day but she cannot offer support in his own home. I need to find someone more appropriate in the North East, preferably Newcastle Upon Tyne area. NHS or private...........can anyone help? Any comments would help me to start with... Regards Sharon Moderator note. If anyone has any suggestions please use the PM system to inform Sharon. We have a policy that care homes should not be named on the board.
