Dementia Support 

Looking after a friend or relative who has dementia is often very challenging. It's as important to look after your own health, as it is that of the person with dementia.

Caring for and supporting someone with dementia can be stressful and at times upsetting. It can also be very rewarding and there may be good times. It is important that you look after your own health and wellbeing and turn to others for support when you need it. There is advice available to help you understand dementia and do all you can to support the person you care about.

We can help you access information, advice and support including:

  • Understanding Dementia Training Course

  • How to get help locally

  • Maintaining independence

  • Benefits advice 

  • Dementia Support Group 

Monthly Dementia Support Group 

Are you caring for someone living with dementia? If yes you are both welcome to join us once a month at our friendly cafe for  a chat over a cuppa or delicious lunch for just £5 including a drink. 


Our staff will be available to offer support, advice & answer any questions. It is also an opportunity to share experiences and support one another. Come and connect to people that understand and enjoy something new each session. “Too many people face Dementia alone”

Dementia Support Guide  

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
