Our Dementia Wellbeing Service is here for you and your loved ones to help you to live well with dementia.

Living well with dementia.

The Dementia Wellbeing Service brings together a number of services and activities which offer support, information and guidance. These include Dementia Cafes, specialist support for families and people with Young Onset Dementia and help and advice from experienced Dementia Wellbeing Officers. 

  • Dementia Wellbeing Hub  

  • Dementia Wellbeing - Over 65

  • Dementia Wellbeing - Young Onset (delivered by Onside)

  • Peer Support and Dementia Cafes 

How to access the service? 

Referrals can be made by a healthcare professional or via self-referral, following a diagnosis from a Worcestershire GP. During your initial conversation with the service, we will organise a home visit appointment from one of our Dementia Wellbeing Officers - they will then be your central point of support.

Contact the Dementia Wellbeing Service: 0800 008 6077
