If you, or someone you know, are aged over 55 and a Kensington & Chelsea resident living with dementia or memory difficulties, we can offer support and advice in a range of ways, both in groups and on a one-to-one basis.

 

For more information about dementia and memory difficulties, visit our Dementia information page here.

Group support

Memory Cafés
Our Memory Cafés are monthly gatherings for people with memory difficulties and their friends and family.

Memory Café Newsletter

Due to the Coronavirus the Memory Café has had to close its doors temporarily and we cannot unfortunately come out to see you at home to tackle this issue we have developed the Memory Café Newsletter. Many of the articles in the newsletter have been produced by our members and include a range of topics from favourite recipes, tips on keeping well while staying at home, local history stories, and much more. For more information go to the Memory Café Newsetter Page.

Exercise for the Mind
Our Exercise for the Mind project is a twelve week group exercise course for people with dementia and memory loss. These sessions are held on a weekly basis and make up a structured programme designed to improve mobility, whilst also providing the opportunity to socialise and enjoy yourself. For more information about Exercise for the Mind, contact Jo on 020 3181 0002 or email jreilly@aukc.org.uk.

We are currently able to provide transport to both of these groups for those who need it.

One to one support

Dementia Support Workers
Our Dementia Support Workers make weekly visits to people with dementia to support you to pursue your interests, maintain independence and retain social contacts.

Dementia Advisors
If you have been recently diagnosed with dementia, our Dementia Advisor can provide support to you and your carers or family to navigate local services.

For more information on one-to-one support, contact the Dementia team on 020 3181 0002 or email dementia@aukc.org.uk.
