The Devonshire is a home to me. Each morning I stepped through the door it felt as though I was entering my second home. Everyone always had a smile on their faces and was very welcoming. I enjoyed taking care of all the Residents and thanks to Devonshire Care Home and their continuous training, such as a walk through dementia and so many others they made me improve the care. I learnt that every single day is different and interesting in its own way. That is one of the aspects that kept me happy and smiling at the end of the day.

Dementia touches so many lives. There is no way to really predict who will end up having to live with this dreadful disease. It hits every socio-economic, ethnic and age group, affecting men and women alike. And what havoc it creates! We know it robs people of their brain functions we just don’t know exactly which ones and to what extent.
