My husband was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2010. He has both complex needs and challenging behaviour. I am his full time carer and have tried daily respite for him in many different day centres and care settings and none of those were able to meet his needs. It is clear that all the staff have a great knowledge and understanding of how to care for someone with dementia and it is very comforting for all the family. My husband is very happy to attend Diverse and I would highly recommend it to other families who know of or who are caring for someone with dementia.
