Dementia Information and Support Service - Age UK Cheshire

Description

Finding out that you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with dementia can be a very anxious time. At this time you may be in need of additional support and reassurance. Our new Age UK Cheshire Dementia Support Service will be able to provide an individualised service that is based upon your personal circumstances and support needs throughout your Dementia Journey, whether you are the person diagnosed or their carer.

Our Dementia Support Workers will listen to you and your needs, and help you plan a course of action to support and enable you to live well.

Our Support Workers will help to co-ordinate the support services and activities around you. We will also be able to help with providing information on:

  • Diagnosis
  • Living well
  • Keeping active
  • Local activities
  • Local peer support groups
  • Planning for the future
  • Financial support

Overall our aim is to enable you to remain living independently within your community.

Referrals to the service will come direct through Memory Clinics and GP’s in the Nantwich and Rural care communities only. Although referrals are via professionals, individuals can contact us direct to ask about the service
