This not only provides a lot of walking space but also has created two internal courtyards, creating outside areas that are safe for residents to enjoy.MHA took over the ownership and running of Foxton Grange in 2005. Prior to that time, it had been always operated within the charity sector and had developed a close relationship with the local Primary Care Trust (PCT). The home specialises in working with individuals whose dementia has brought about challenging behaviours. All the home's referrals are taken from the PCT and the area's psycho-geriatrician. They maintain close links with Foxton Grange, allowing continuing involvement for the benefit of the mental health of each resident and providing greater opportunity to maintain care, where possible, within the community.For more information about the home please visit here.
