Following an initial assessment, our Dementia Support Workers will provide information, guidance and practical support to help people to better understand dementia, to cope with day-to-day living and to plan for the future. The service also supports people to access other services.

A fuller assessment is completed over time. This enables us to better understand how the person hopes to benefit from our support, to address any money or legal matters, to clarify their personal goals and to plan to ensure they can continue to live well as the dementia progresses.

I just wanted to thank you for the support you are giving Mum and Dad. It is really making a difference and makes Mums job easier particularly as she will listen to you and use the different strategies you talk to her about to good effect. Also, it is nice for her not to feel as alone now.
