About Cartlidge House
Cartlidge House uses the Eden Alternative; an approach to care that focuses on improving the ageing experience by engaging residents with plants, animals and children in a variety of activities, from flower arranging to cooking and crafts. In a six month trial of Eden at a similar Accord residential home, the number of residents using psychotropic drugs as part of dementia treatment fell from 47 per cent to just two per cent
