Milford Manor Gardens, Salisbury SP1 2RN
Milford Manor is a specialist dementia care home for up to 30 people, set in a delightful location just a short walk from the River Bourne.
Widely recognised for its innovative approach to dementia, Milford Manor draws on the work of the specialist dementia centres at Stirling, Surrey and Bradford universities to translate their research findings into practical ways to help and support people with this illness.
The home is purposely designed to reduce any confusion or anxiety residents may feel – giving them the maximum freedom and choice in their daily lives, encouraging them to do as much as they can for themselves, whilst involving their families and friends as often as possible.
The manager has a specialist diploma in caring for people with dementia, whilst all of the staff receive specific dementia training and are supported by an experienced senior team including a registered mental health nurse.
