Diagnosed with early on-set dementia and having just experienced a stroke LH’s family were finding themselves unable to meet the care needs of their loved one. At just 56 the stroke had affected her mobility. The dementia also meant she was unable to be left on her own and was experiencing social isolation without being able to get out and about as much.

LH had secured a place at a care home but unfortunately the home had a Covid-19 outbreak and LH was unable to be admitted.

Whilst most of our locations are for people aged 65 and over we recognised that we could help and support LH and her family on a short-term basis with our Apartment option at Southlands in Roundhay – which also has care staff on-site 24/7 available for all Apartment occupants if, or when, they need it.
