Help us deliver the highest standards of dementia care to the Scottish Borders by donating to our new state of the art Dementia Centre, Murray House, which will create 18 places to care for people with Dementia

A centre of excellence for dementia care on your doorstep

DEMENTIA affects around one in six* people over 80 in Scotland.

It is a very individual illness and the best care needs to be equally individual.  It’s natural for those seeking care to want to stay close to those they love, and the community where they’ve grown.  Yet many people currently have to move out of the area or travel further afield for specialist dementia care.

At Queen’s House, it is our ambition to create a state-of-the-art dementia centre called Murray House, a new development  next door to our existing  home, which will provide 18 dedicated places for Scottish Border residents with dementia.

With your help we can ensure more people can be cared for close to family and in the community they love. Will you help us?

  • £3m will create a state of the art Dementia Centre with 18 places, over two units with nine rooms.  It will also include an activity space, laundry and kitchen.
  • £250,000 will create a Sensory Garden, designed to engage all senses and stimulate memories.
  • £10,000 will provide stimulating activities, such as a music room, floral arranging, baking, jigsaws and days out.
