We provide Short Term Accommodation/Respite services for people with Younger Onset Dementia (YOD).

Our dedicated staff take a holistic approach to social care, with consideration given to the participants’ circumstances, interests and requirements.
Short Term Accommodation (Respite)
For the carer (family)
Everyone needs a break. Respite care provides carers with a temporary rest from caregiving, while the person living with dementia continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver.
Respite care can help you as a carer by providing a new environment or time to relax. It’s a good way for you to take time for yourself.
For the person with dementia
Respite care can give an opportunity to:
- Spend time in a safe, supportive environment
- Interact with others having similar experiences
- Participate in activities designed to match personal abilities and needs
Supported Independent Living (SIL)
There may come a time when the person living with different memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia will need more care than can be provided at home.
Making the decision to move into long-term care can be very difficult.
Supported Independent Living accommodation bridges the gap between living independently and living in a nursing home.
The Co-operative Life will assist with the transition to ensure that moving into long-term care will be a stress-less experience for both the person with dementia and the caregiver.
