Dementia is an umbrella term for a group of conditions that affect the brain, the most of which are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia.

Each person living with dementia will experience it in a unqiue way. That's why our support focuses on the individual and crucially, recognises their history and 'personhood'.

The onsent and development of dementia varies immensely from person to person. For some people, it comes on gradually while others experience noticeable stages. Likewise, some people experience good and bad patches, while others have a more consistent condition.

How we support people with dementia

By working closely with the individual and their family, we create a highly tailored support package - one that is flexible enough to adapt, as your needs change.

To ensure the highest levels of expertise we endeavour to work closely with clinical experts. We can also support individuals to see specialists such as speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychiatrists.
