Welcome to Resthill Memory Care

Dementia is an umbrella term covering more than 100 different forms of neurodegeneration.

Each type of dementia will affect different parts of the brain in a different order and possibly in a different way. Knowing which dementia a person is living with can help care staff recognize how best to support someone.


We are a residential home, focusing on specialised care for residents with memory-impacting conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Memory Care with a Difference

Our homes are designed to provide a safe, yet homely structured environment. Specialised caregiving by a well-trained team to deal with unique behaviour and anxiety is core to creating personalised routines that lower anxiety and reduce confusion. That is why we are a pet-friendly facility.


It’s Not Always What You Think. Memory lapse is natural, and typically expected with ageing. However, it is important to know when these pockets of forgetfulness or dementia go beyond the realm of normal ageing.
