A monitoring and support service for people with dementia living alone. Community support workers (CSWs) stay with each case from beginning to end, providing emotional and practical support via phone calls and home visits. They regularly monitor the situation to ensure relevant services are in place and to help the person with dementia to attend key appointments.
Dementia advisers are named workers for people with dementia. They're the first point of contact for people with dementia, their carers and other professionals who may need assistance to access Dementia Concern. They complete home visits to assess the needs of person with dementia and their carers, while providing advice and information.
Dementia Link Workers work alongside GP Networks in Ealing and the West London Health Trust. They provide ongoing support and advice to people with dementia who are on medication and experiencing cognitive difficulties, as well as empowering carers and families. Support includes regular assessments and referrals to other services.
Our social clubs consist of Weekend Day Care and a Thursday Group for more active people with dementia. They offer people with dementia a chance to socialise in a safe environment and offer respite for their carers.
