Recently been diagnosed with dementia and want to know where you stand? Caring for someone with dementia and need support? We have people who can help you out. From basic advice to more in-depth practical support, our team can assess your requirements after a diagnosis of dementia has been made, and recommend the best plan of action.
Ways we can help:
- We run Wellbeing Clubs for people who are living with dementia and their carers. These clubs can be found across the area and are run by staff that have experience in working with people who have dementia. The clubs enable you or your loved one to have a good time in a safe environment full of meaningful activities.
- Our Information & Advice Team can help support you or a loved one either in person, over the phone or by email. From getting a better understanding about your diagnosis to seeing whether you are entitled to any financial support. Additionally, our Homecare Team and Companions are trained to know about the condition and have expertise in working with people who have dementia. We can help support a person who has dementia with errands around the house and can escort them to meetings, appointments and social functions.
- We run a series of Carer Workshop sessions for family and friend carers. If you care for someone who has dementia and want to meet other carers in the same boat as you to share skills and knowledge, please do come along. We also train up local organisations on how to approach and work with people who have dementia; both raising awareness about the condition and removing the stigma towards people with dementia. Whether this be a talk at the local GP surgery or Hospital, or running a hands-on course for staff at a local care agency.
