St Agnes' Care and Lifestyle - Donnelly House

St Agnes’ Care and Lifestyle Dementia Services

Dementia describes a collection of symptoms caused by disorders affecting the brain. Everyone’s experience of living with dementia is unique.

Receiving a dementia diagnosis can often be a long and emotional journey. Here at St Agnes’ Catholic Parish, we are here to support you every step of the way.

Our range of specialised dementia services have been designed to respond to your needs as they change, helping you and your family plan for the future. We offer dementia-specific support through our home care services, residential care services, and our innovative dementia-specific community, Emmaus Village.

Home Care Services

Our home care health professionals can develop dementia-specific home care plans with relevant information that can help address needs associated with communication, nutrition, hygiene, memory, or behavioural issues.

Residential Care Services

When a higher level of support is required, St Agnes’ Catholic Parish offers a range of residential care services. Whether in a traditional care setting or our newly constructed purpose-built dementia village, each of these services offer caring and nurturing environments, enabling residents to live happy and meaningful lives.

Each of our residential care services have clinical and care staff with extensive experience in providing support to people with dementia, as well as 24-hour care, and emergency call response systems for peace of mind.

We pride ourselves on building strong communities for people with dementia, where they can continue to live a meaningful life while maintaining their dignity and independence. This is why we have also built an innovative dementia-specific community, Emmaus Village.

Emmaus Village is a safe and secure environment based on the world-leading The Hogeweyk® model in the Netherlands. Purposefully designed to empower residents to remain active and independent, residents will live, meet, and socialise with others based on common interests while they maintain connection to their family and community.
