  • Monday, 12-12.30, lunch and chit chat
  • Wednesday, 11-11.40, managing your wellbeing
  • Wednesday, 14.00-14.40, reminiscing and crafty moments
  • Friday, 11.00-11.40, quiz of the week
General Details

Dementia Together continues to ensure that people receive the right information and support at the right time working in partnership with health, social care and the voluntary sectors. The service also offers comprehensive support for the carers own emotional wellbeing with the understanding that everyone has an individual journey.

The Dementia Together helpline is open 7 days a week for both new callers and for those currently registered with the service. The helpline offers emotional support as well as practical guidance about how to cope during this period of lock down, such as creative activities that will keep the mind stimulated.

Anyone can call the helpline, whether they are a carer, someone with a diagnosis of dementia, a healthcare professional or someone worried about their own health and want to self-refer.
