Living with dementia or memory loss can bring many challenges. We can offer you specialist 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
Our Specialist Services for people living with Dementia. The Dementia Wellbeing and Befriending Service supports people to live independently and safely at home for as long as possible, stay socially engaged and carry on doing what they love. The service supports Camden residents over the age of 55 in the early or moderate stages of dementia.
How does the service work?
Following an initial assessment, the team will work with you, your family, or carers to produce a personalised wellbeing plan using their expertise, knowledge, and experience to adapt the support provided. Support includes Befriending, Wellbeing Plans, Information, and Advice.
