Anchor’s Palmersdene Care Home in Jarrow is a trusted provider of residential care for elderly people, offering specialised services for people who have dementia.
At Palmersdene, activities play an important role to enhance the residents’ quality of life. Having recently introduced several themed areas (flower shop, bus stops, ice cream parlour and seaside area) the residents certainly have a welcoming and engaging environment in which to keep active and enjoy.

Since introducing the new areas we have had some lovely feedback from Liz Turner, Home Administrator, regarding the work and how it has benefitted their residents.
“The Find Murals have certainly enhanced our environment. All of our customers, families and staff are enjoying them they have been a great addition to our home. Your workmanship and service was excellent and we would have no problem recommending you to other homes”

Rob Windsor-Hey Find’s Care Home Environmental Specialist commented,

“ We have enjoyed working with the team at Plamersdene. For a person living with dementia keeping active in the things they enjoy is extremely important for emotional and physical wellbeing.
By introducing areas that provide opportunities for a person to live a familiar lifestyle is hugely beneficial not only for the person but also for the care facility.”
