Edgcumbe Unit

The Edgcumbe Unit is an inpatient facility based at the Mount Gould Hospital site for people, predominantly over the age of 65, who are suffering from Dementia or cognitive impairment and are in the most acute and vulnerable stages of their illness.

We aim to provide a safe environment which allows a holistic assessment to be completed and the implementation of treatment by the Multi-Disciplinary Team as part of the Dementia Pathway. Everybody's journey through illness is individual - the ward recognises this and care is planned accordingly on an individual basis.

Edgcumbe offers a place where dignity, privacy and respect are valued by staff through daily care and therapeutic activities, to enable patients to maintain an optimum level of functioning.

We aim to achieve a successful discharge, working closely with patients and carers.

We have effective working relationships with a wide range of statutory and non-statutory agencies through clear and regular communication.

A booklet has been developed for patients and visitors to Edgcumbe.
