What does EMI mean please?

Hi Sammy,

It can also stand for Elderly Mentally Infirm.

Either way, it's a shorthand was of describing services/homes for people with dementia.

For example, when you search for care homes and services on the Commission for Social Care Inspection's web site:


you will see a checkbox for "Dementia(EMI)" which means the home is licensed to provide a set number of places for people with dementia.

Take care,
