  Central Park Nursing Home based their whole new extension on the learnings of Dementia Care Matters after our Proprietor, Caroline Maguire and Director of Nursing, Stella Grogan, completed studies with Dementia Care Matters last year.

  Thanks to Dementia Care Matters they have seen a huge improvement in residents with dementia. It’s amazing how the little things like rummage drawers, hats and jackets hung on the wall or even colours can help someone feel more relaxed and comfortable.
