Anyone who has cared for a close friend or relative suffering from dementia knows how strenuous of a job it is to show intensive care for such people. They may walk out of the house, and most face life-threatening situations out in the streets or other dangers. Shafik Sachedina, however, with a compassionate heart decided to start Sussex Health Care. The health care houses demented people; with staff who continuously provide unrelenting support to the patients. Despite providing care for demented patients, the facility also provides care to the elderly; whether suffering from severe dementia or not. They ensure that the elderly do regular fitness practices as well as maintain their cognitive functions through quizzes and handicraft works. The facility was also established to care for those with learning disabilities and those with illnesses related to neurology including; Multiple Sclerosis and, the Huntington’s disease.
