A £2m supported accommodation development for people with dementia is to be built in Hemlington Grange, Middlesbrough.
Middlesbrough Council is looking into the “provision of a viable alternative to residential/nursing care” for people over 50 with dementia in Hemlington Grange, report the Gazette Live.
Councillor Julia Rostron has said: “The proposed scheme will result in an investment of more than £2m in an area of the Hemlington Grangedevelopment site that would otherwise be underdeveloped and will work to complement the housing and commercial elements of the site.”
