The Limes is a day care and support service for people with young onset dementia in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and north east Somerset. The Limes was set up in 1996 and has always been a service for people with young onset dementia. It is unique in the South West – small but beautifully formed, a social club atmosphere, where they have up to nine clients per day who take part in activities on offer.
Clients help plan activities, but can opt out if they do not feel that they want to be involved. Staff to client ratio is 1:3, although the staff team work a shift pattern across and extended day (8am to 6pm) meaning they can offer one to one support if required. The extended day enables family members to continue working.
