What we do Specialist care for residents with challenging behaviours

At Cornerstone Healthcare we care for people with challenging behaviours associated with complex neurological, physical and mental health needs. We are one of the few specialist providers of this type of care and we are the only provider with this as our sole focus in the South East of England.

Who we care for

Our residents primarily have a neurological degenerative condition such as Huntington’s Disease, MND, Parkinson’s or a form of Dementia with an underlying mental health condition which makes them inappropriate candidates for dementia care homes or residential care homes for the elderly.

We are specialists in challenging behaviours associated with:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies
  • Frontotemporal dementia (Pick’s disease)
  • Huntington’s disease

  • Korsakoff syndrome
  • Parkinson’s disease and PD-related disorders
  • Prion diseases
  • Vascular dementia

We welcome pre-referral visits from health professionals and families.
