The service offers a range of support to anyone affected by dementia. They can provide you with information and support across a range of issues

  • Understanding dementia
  • How to get help locally
  • Maintaining independence
  • Financial and legal matters
  • Caring for people with dementia
  • Changes in relationships and behaviour
  • Community care

The service can support both you and your family members/carers through the different stages of dementia.
They deliver a range of groups for people affected by memory loss or dementia where you can meet other people who have similar circumstances to you:

  • Memory Cafes
  • Carers Groups
  • Singing for the Brain

You can find the venues, dates and times of these groups listed in the carers directory.

You don’t need an official diagnosis of dementia or be of a certain age to get advice and support from the service.
