Support planning

We offer a wide range of free support to people diagnosed with dementia including their family and carers.

Staff assist clients to create a personalised support plan, to identify their personal needs and plan the steps needed to live their life to the full for as long as possible by maximising their independence while living with their diagnosis.

We focus on our clients’ wishes and needs.  Through a combination of group activities and one-to-one support, we aim to promote self-confidence and empower clients to take control of their lives. We support people in their own homes and in the community, through regular drop-ins, telephone support, workshops, group activities and one-to-one support meetings.
