Health Minister's office says it is 'unfortunate'
The department of health and social care has said the prospect of a dementia village would not be worthwhile.
A study with the British care charity Belong Limited, found a dedicated facility to accommodate those with the deteriative condition would not be affordable or sustainable.
Concerns about the feasibility of the department's plans were identified and so a financial appraisal was not undertaken.
In his written answer on the Tynwald question paper, Health Minister David Ashford said his department is developing a model of integrated care which includes services for people with dementia.
