Living with dementia can bring many challenges. We can help you to deal with these and to get the most out of life.

The Dementia Wellbeing service provides flexibility and ongoing support to people living with memory loss and dementia in Camden. We can also provide support, advice and information for carers, families and friends as well as to other organisations and professionals. 

The Dementia Befriending service offers regular visits from volunteer befrienders for people who are isolated. 

Our resource centres support people to get out and try new activities. We also offer individual counselling for people diagnosed with dementia, as well as those close to them, to help them manage the emotional and practical impact of a diagnosis.

Watch our short film ‘Loving Life’ about the importance of a person-centred approach in dementia services.
