You can refer a person diagnosed with dementia to us and we will link them into the local community dementia provision in their area (delivered by People Keeping Well partners). 

The person living with dementia will then receive:

  • An initial phone call (and 6-monthly calls thereafter) from a dementia-trained link worker to see how things are and check what support they would like
  • Dementia information, advice and support
  • Opportunities to join friendly and fun dementia-specific and dementia-friendly groups and activities including:

- Dementia and Memory Cafés, social dining groups and coffee mornings

- Walking groups, exercise and chairobics classes

- Music and singing sessions

- Carer support groups and pampering sessions

- Groups for men and groups for women

- Gardening, allotment and farming projects and much more!
