DEMENTIA patients and their families will have access to more services when a new home opens in Thetford.

The Redgate House Care Home has taken over the former Abbeyfield building on Green Lane and will provide care for 13 residents.

This will include day and respite care. The home is privately owned by three business partners, Rachael Claxton, Linda Henden and Kevin Steward who identified a need in the town.

Ms Henden, manager of Redgate, said: “I've got a rapport with people with dementia and am used to caring for people with mental health problems.
