Dementia Support

Providing the extra support needed for people living with Dementia to take part in our Befriending services.

This may include regular 1-2-1 support to build confidence and enable people to join in group activities.

In the 12 months ending March 2017, 6000 hours of support were delivered to clients with dementia. The service is flexible to the needs of the individual and carers report a welcome respite from their daily responsibilities.

Although we provide some services and outings with more focus and support for dementia-diagnosed elderly people (our Monday singing group for example) we integrate dementia-diagnosed clients with mainstream activities as much as possible.

"The Dementia Worker and others in Befrienders keep me fully informed".
