    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:

    http://www.csci.org.uk/registeredservicesdirectory/rsquicksearch.asp

    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,

    Sandy
