The flexible dementia outreach service is designed to enable individuals who are experiencing the early stages of a dementia type illness. With the aim to help them to continue pursuing their interests, take part in meaningful activities, maintain their independence and retain or develop social contacts.

Trained support workers will spend quality time with each person on a weekly or fortnightly basis, helping reduce social isolation and retain or regain links with their local community.

By allowing a person to remain at home longer, enabling them to retain daily living skills and independence, and by giving them a sense of achievement and purpose, disruptive or challenging behaviour can be alleviated.

Our ethos is to understand the person with dementia, and allow them to be themselves in a safe, non-medical and stimulating environment.

This gives their carer valuable respite time, reducing the potential for crisis intervention.

The service aims to:

  • build relationships
  • promote confidence
  • maintain independence
  • reduce isolation
  • improve daily living skills
  • encourage hobbies & interests
  • enhance well being
