Listed here are the local services for people with dementia, often described as ‘respite for carers’. These services are run by experienced professional staff and are places where people with dementia can enjoy the company of others and participate in meaningful activities.
My Local activities section includes gardening clubs and exercise sessions where people, who have been diagnosed with dementia, are encouraged to continue being active for as long as they would like.
This section signposts services and support groups for carers and the person with dementia. Meeting others in the same situation, talking to a professional, finding a supportive local surgery or faith group, can often be challenging.
We have listed a range of support groups for carers of people with dementia as well as innovative programmes and training courses to help increase your understanding.
Dementia friendly design, including the use of contrasting colours and textures, can improve home living.
