Mental health

Mental health is just as important as physical health, especially for those living with dementia.

A quarter of over 65s experience depression and 40% of over 85s live with incapacitating depression, which disrupts their ability to perform daily activities.

Those with dementia may develop depression and or anxiety from an awareness of their reduced or decreasing capabilities.

At Belle Vue Court we appreciate the challenges of caring for those with dementia and mental health conditions and provide outstanding, personal care for our ladies and gentlemen in the welcoming environment of our home.
