Dementia places a profound burden on loved ones & Carers. Recognising their key role & needs we provide integrated support consisting of advice, education, training & respite care. We wrap support groups around our core services to meet the growing demand & protect our person-centred care approach.
Dementia involves cognitive impairment alongside often substantial physical, social & emotional implications for individuals & for their Carers. Each person living with dementia has their unique preferences and strengths but also face unique challenges. Dementia can strip away individuals' sense of identity & purpose, which weighs heavily on the relationships between individual & carers who can become overwhelmed by the changing situation, fragmented support & the complex social care system.
We’re scaling up our core services team as well as increasing the number and range of support groups to help us reach more Carers. This retains our person-centred approach; still catching challenges and crisis early whilst facilitating shared experiences with peers, building knowledge of wellbeing strategies and the support and partner networks available. We will increase time with staff, volunteers, and other Carers, building on the sense of community, and layered, timely support.
