Kowhai Dementia Unit

Kowhai is our 16 bed Dementia Unit incorporating best practice design to optimise resident comfort and reducing the need for medication. Our warm inviting spaces make every effort to provide a home-like environment for our Residents in a relaxed friendly secure atmosphere. Residents have access to a Kitchen and garden, with regular activities designed to encourage them to experience daily life as they have known it.
