We provide support to people and their families after their memory problem or dementia has been diagnosed, which can be a difficult time for all. We offer support courses and group sessions which complement the care and treatment we provide and help people to live as well as they can with their memory problem or dementia.
A 4-week or 1-day programme for people looking after relatives or friends with dementia which often results in improved outcomes for carers. The programme provides information on simple coping strategies to help manage stress, reduce isolation, and address financial concerns as well as support available from a range of services.
Cognitive Stimulation Therapy
A 7-week programme for people with mild to moderate dementia which often results in improvements for individuals. The programme aims to stimulate people’s memory in an interactive and engaging way and focuses on using their abilities and learning strategies to help their memory. The activities and exercises are designed to help with retrieval of memory.
Living Well with Dementia (LivDem)
This course is not running at the moment due to staff issues. We hope to resume it at some point.
Once it’s running, it will be a 10-week programme for people newly diagnosed with dementia which often results in improved outcomes for people living with dementia. The course provides a place for people to talk about their diagnosis with others who are going through the same thing. During the programme attendees learn about what memory is and what they can do to help their memory, what dementia is and what treatments are available, and what attendees can do to live as well as possible.
