Devika Lodge -
Specialist Dementia Home

Our long term goal is to create a purpose-built home, designed specifically for people living with Dementia.

We have a unique concept that we hope will revolutionise the future of Dementia care. We want to do this for anyone living with Dementia that requires specialist care, for their families and for the paid carers that are truly passionate about providing quality care. We want to be the reason that people are no longer anxious about considering full time care for their loved ones living with Dementia and we have an ambitious strategy that we truly believe could improve the lives of so many people.
