Cazaubon Unit Dementia Assessment (formerly Columbia Ward)

Inpatient Assessment - Older People

The Cazaubon Unit is an in-patient dementia assessment unit for older people living in the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, and The City of London.

The Cazaubon Unit provides dementia assessment in the City of London, Hackney, Tower Hamlets, and Newham. It is a short-term assessment unit with an average length of stay of six weeks. It provides assessment and treatment for people experiencing complex mental health problems associated with degenerative brain disorders such as dementia.

Each patient receives a thorough assessment of their needs from a wide range of health professionals. Along with input from families, the aim is to provide person-centred care by building an understanding of a person's life history in order to meet their individual needs. 

The East Ham site is smoke-free.
