The Edgcumbe Unit offers a homely, safe and secure environment for people at the most vulnerable stages of dementia or cognitive impairment. It is on the Mount Gould Hospital site in Plymouth.

Everybody’s experience of an illness is different. Our professional, multi-disciplinary team provides personalised care based on a thorough and continuous assessment of each person’s specific needs as part of the Dementia Pathway.

We value the dignity, privacy and respect of each person we support. Our care and activities always aim to help people to remain as active and independent as possible. Where appropriate, we aim to help people to return to their homes and work closely with individuals, their relatives and carers to achieve a successful discharge.
