Support for those caring for someone living with Dementia is all about helping you or a relative to have the support needed to carry on living in their own home.
Carers Link Lancashire recognise the need for support for those who care for someone living with Dementia. Some carers, following a Carers Assessment, are offered respite as they are assessed as needing a regular or semi regular break from their caring role. You may need adaptations in your home, support with benefit applications, personal alarms, emotional support, or more practical solutions.
On the first Tuesday of every month, we run a Dementia Support Hub on Zoom from 2pm - 3pm, with guest speakers and an opportunity for carers to share solutions and tips around supporting a loved one living with Dementia.
We run regular Understanding Dementia Courses over three-two hour sessions on Zoom at various times and dates throughout the year.

We have developed a guide to localised support, though we do recommend that you contact each group as they may be operating differently at the moment. You can find a copy of our Dementia Support Guide by clicking here. If you run a community support group and wish to appear in the guide, please call us on (01254) 387444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
