We provide a wide range of specialist services to people living with dementia and their family carers. Each of our services is introduced below. Please contact us for further details.
Dementia Advice Service
Our Dementia Advice Sheffield service provides a one-stop shop, first point of contact service to respond to any non-clinical dementia-related query from a person who is living with dementia or their family carer. Our specialist advice workers will respond to your initial enquiry and signpost you to the best source of information to meet your specific needs, including resources and services in your local community which can provide ongoing support. These may include memory cafes, carers' groups, singing, allotment, chairobics or Sporting Memories groups.
If you are working with people living with dementia as a professional or a volunteer, you may find useful information on this page.
