Dementia services

Music therapy for dementia sufferers

Being diagnosed with dementia can leave people feeling unsure of where to find information and how to find out what is available that could help either the person diagnosed or the family.

Our information centres can provide basic information and advice to people with a dementia and their family

carers. They will also signpost people to the most relevant services in the county.

 

 

Our Dementia Services

The Suffolk Dementia Partnership (Age UK Suffolk, Suffolk Family Carers, Sue Ryder Care) have developed new services to give information, advice and guidance to people, and their family carers, throughout the course of their dementia.  We offer ...

 

Suffolk Dementia Helpline 

If you are worried about dementia, we will provide a ‘listening ear’ and answer your questions on the condition as well as put you in contact with local organisations that can support you. We will also provide advice on what financial entitlements are available for you.   If you have been diagnosed with dementia we can also refer you and your family carer to your local dementia advisor. Please call 01473 353350.

 

Dementia Advisors  

Dementia Advisors will enable you to find the help you need to live independently in your own home. The local dementia advisor will arrange a time to come and see you and offer you information and advice tailored to your own situation. We know your circumstances will change over time, and to make decisions about your life and care you need to be well informed. Dementia advisors will continue to offer advice whenever you need it and link you with the services and support you may need.

Please call 01473 353055 or email dementia@ageuksuffolk.org

 

Local community support 

We know that many people are fearful of dementia. We aim to work with local people to provide a better understanding of what it means to live with dementia. This will help raise awareness of the needs of people in their locality who are living with the condition. We will do this by working with local communities to become more ‘dementia-aware’ and enhance the support available to you closer to home. 

For more information please call Vicky Hutchinson on 07841 460379
