Putting dementia into the heart of Extra Care Housing in Wales: A case study from Mold

This Housing LIN Case Study no 86 focuses on the benefits that effective partnership working brings to new extra care schemes. It looks at what key stakeholders offer to the process and takes learning from each stage in the development process, including designing for inclusion with people with dementia in mind.

Llys Jasmine, in the heart of Mold, Flintshire, is one of the first Welsh sites to feature dedicated apartments for people with dementia within the extra care housing facility. It was the only specialist housing scheme to be shortlisted in development of the year at the Housing Awards 2014.
