Welcome to Living Well Services - our vibrant new hubs offering support to people living with mild-to-moderate memory issues and their carers.

‘A dementia diagnosis can bring many challenges including feelings of loneliness and isolation and our new services will help people stay connected, and continue doing the things that they enjoy,’ says Age UK Barnet chief executive Helen Newman.

The Dementia Adviser Service will provide specialist advice and information and a link for the whole family to specialist support services; and Day Opportunities will be offered at two venues in East Finchley and Hendon.

‘Our new day opportunities give people living with dementia and their carers a chance to mix with others in a nurturing, welcoming and inclusive environment,’ says wellbeing manager Fiona Cronin. ‘We are offering a range of fun and stimulating activities and events, as well as cognitive stimulation therapy.’

Social contact is so important to all of us - the pandemic has certainly proved this. ‘A dementia diagnosis or concerns about memory can exacerbate this – it can be a very isolating experience for both the person with memory loss and their close family members,’ says Fiona. ‘This is why we are keen to offer accessible support for carers too.’

‘We were pleased to be awarded the contract for Dementia Support Services by the local authority, giving us the chance to develop our services and activities programme, and build on years of experience supporting older people in the borough,’ says Helen. ‘Our aim is to provide support, resources and information for the whole community, helping all of us to make Barnet a dementia-friendly borough.’
