The Bella Vista Dementia Day Centre will be officially opening its doors to provide services to patients as from today, Monday 16th January 2017.
The exciting new development has seen GHA professionals and the private sector working in tandem to bring the project to fruition. The new facility, the first of its kind on the Rock, will offer 90 places at any one time. It will be managed by a private company, Meddoc, on behalf of the Gibraltar Health Authority. Bella Vista is located at the site of the former Royal Naval Hospital and will be providing a community-orientated model of care with the aim of enhancing the life of dementia patients and their families. The Day Centre is set to become the central hub for all Alzheimer’s and Dementia services that will be provided to patients.
