Dementia Unit Planning Approval

Thinking Buildings has been working with a Derbyshire care home provider for over 3 years. They currently operate 2 cares homes in the Derbyshire Dales.

In 2021 it became clear an extension was needed to one of their care homes to address the under provision of specialist dementia care spaces in the local area. Many of the local authority homes are scheduled for closure.

Dedicated specialist dementia care is essential. Somewhere in the world a person develops dementia every 3 minutes. There were over 55 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2020. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 78 million in 2030 and 139 million in 2050. 900,000 in the UK are diagnosed as living with dementia and the youngest person diagnosed with the disease was just 4 years old.

We’re delighted to confirm Derbyshire Dales District Council have approved a scheme for the extension of this care home and our design can facilitate the provision of a state of the art care facility for those who need it.
