Dementia Support Service
Our local staff are working by phone, in writing and online to support people affected by Dementia. Local Dementia Support Workers offer information and practical guidance to help people understand dementia, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future. Dementia Support Workers are there to explain about the condition as well as signposting people to the support services available.
Companion Calls can help people with dementia and their carers feel more connected and less lonely during the coronavirus crisis. These are a social chat – they do not offer specific dementia support, advice or guidance. Our trained volunteers make regular phone calls to check in and have a friendly chat about anything the person they’re calling chooses.
