Building work on a new £2.6m dementia care unit in Cumbria is under way.

The unit at the Carleton Clinic in Carlisle, will include 15 en-suite bedrooms with innovative designs to help patients with dementia.

The current dementia unit, the Ruskin Unit, will be relocated to the Pennine Department on the Carleton Clinic site.

Carlisle MP John Stevenson and the chairman of the trust, Mike Taylor, cut the turf at the site to mark the start of the building work.

Mr Stevenson said: "This investment will undoubtedly be of benefit to patients and staff currently on Ruskin Ward.

"New state of the art facilities will ensure that the latest technologies are being used to better manage the treatment of dementia patients in our city.

"I look forward to visiting the new unit when it is fully operational."

The unit will also include inside and outside areas, activity spaces and colours and themes to distinguish rooms.

    Even if you do have to pay for it, it's not much more than current gas prices. Many luxury watch companies actually prohibit sale of their watches online by their dealer network.
