Did you know that the Alzheimer’s Society provide a range of local support and services for people living with dementia, their loved ones and carer’s. These include:

A Family Navigators Service – Family Navigators offer information and practical guidance to help you understand dementia, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future.  They offer information to people who are worried about their memory and ongoing support to people affected by dementia face to face, over the phone or in writing.

Information Hubs – An Information Hub will provide information about dementia, local services and practical tips about living well with dementia.

Peer Support – Peer support group gives you the opportunity to meet with others who understand some of what you are going through.  Run by a facilitator, the sessions offer a chance for people affected by dementia to ask questions, get information and share experiences in a safe and supportive environment.

Singing for the Brain – Singing for the Brain brings people together in a friendly, fun and social environment.  Based around the principles of music therapy, the stimulating sessions include vocal warm-ups and singing a wide variety of familiar and new songs.
