More plans released for new Peckham dementia centre

Southwark’s plans for a specialist dementia centre took another step forward this week when the council released more details on the proposed site in Cator Street, Peckham.

Following an assessment it was decided that the new centre would not be suitable for the Resource and Education Centre building, which was due to be refurbished, but would instead be housed in a brand new facility on the same street.

The plans will see the first 42 units ready for new residents in August 2016, with the day centre and a further 38 extra care units due for completion exactly two years later.

Cllr Stephanie Cryan, Southwark Cabinet member for adult care and financial inclusion said: “Improving our offer to people with dementia and their families is the core driving force behind our new specialist centre. I am delighted to announce that our newer and more ambitious plans will include a brand new day centre building to replace existing centres at Lordship Lane and Southwark Park Road, as well as 80 vital extra care flats for residents in need of assisted living support.

“We are also looking into the possibilities of other complimentary services that might be able to share the site. All of which I believe will create a better and more responsive caring environment for those in our borough who need it most.”
