Living with Dementia
We offer programmes designed specially for people living with dementia, both the person with the diagnosis and his or her care partner to share together:
Supporting Someone with Dementia
We also support carers by running seminars, skill-building workshops and hosting a lunch club:
- Still Caring lunch club — a monthly lunch bringing former and active carers together
- Carers seminars — small peer-led facilitated groups
- Skill building workshops — opportunities to develop skills and techniques to support better a person with dementia
- one-to-one support — access to support, advice and guidance
Researching and Evaluating Dementia Services and Programmes
We work with researchers at Cambridge University to identify ways to improve the lives of people living with dementia. Together we have investigated improvements in nutrition and exercise courses as well as the benefits of museum access.
Working with Dementia
Alongside our work to support people living with dementia, we support health and social care professionals with resources, links and guidance. We aim to share skills and techniques which focus on abilities while understanding the impact of dementia on both the person with the dementia diagnosis and his or her care partners.
