Age UK Sunderland has a new developmental service available from March 2020.

The Metcalfe Dementia Support Service offers a dedicated day service for older people living with moderate dementia who live within the boundaries of Sunderland.

Age UK Sunderland’s new Dementia Support Centre was declared officially open by the Right Worshipful the Mayor, Councillor David Snowdon and his Mayoress Councillor Dianne Snowdon on Monday 24th February 2020 at Lee Terrace, Houghton Le Spring DH5 0AQ.

The centre has a beautiful colourful dementia friendly design and provides tailored support from trained and dedicated staff via activities to help stimulate those living with a moderate diagnosis of dementia, providing much needed respite support for carers.

The centre comes complete with a sensory garden for additional stimulation and enjoyment.
