Founded in 2010 The Vales has become a brand name as a caring facility for Dementia. Situated in Pennington, on the Natal South Coast.
Currently we have three houses each accommodating differing degrees of age related symptoms.
DIRECTION OF COMPANY
The feasibility of Care facilities is mostly based on a growing demand based on an ageing population. Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care are seen as a rapidly increasing segment of the market. It is inevitable that our population is getting older with the aging of the Baby Boomer generation. It is estimated that by 2050 this population could quintuple and roughly 50% of those over 85 are expected to have moderate to severe memory loss.
MEDICAL FACILITIES AVAILABLE.
In both the above options a Private Registered Nurse will always conduct the initial assessment and provide ongoing supervision and communication with both family members and medical team, the decision as to accommodation in either options will largely depend on the condition both physically and mentally of the elderly person.
