Living with dementia or memory loss can bring many challenges. We can offer you support and help you to get the most out of life.
How we’ve adapted this service in response to COVID-19
We are still taking referrals for both the Dementia Wellbeing and Dementia Befriending services
Befrienders and service coordinators are keeping in contact with members via the telephone
Face to face visits have been suspended and will only resume once we are advised it is safe to do so
The Dementia Wellbeing service offer independence, 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.
How does the Dementia Wellbeing service work?
The Dementia Wellbeing team provide practical and emotional support to meet your needs. Following an initial home visit they’ll work with you, your family or carers to produce a personalised wellbeing plan. This plan will focus on the issues that you think will make a difference. Our leaflet, which you can download below, provides more detail on how the service can help.
