A FREE full assessment of your needs and requirements will be taken. A trained Dementia Care Practitioner will be introduced with similar likes and interests  and a care support package put together before the service commences. We believe in continuity of care so that relationship and trust can be built upon, so where possible the same Dementia Care Practitioner will visit each session.

Additional information:


We know from research and from many years working in the health and social care field, that an active lifestyle is critical to the health and well-being of us all. The need for meaningful pursuits, for valued occupations, for cherished routines and for a full and varied day does not disappear with the arrival of dementia. Our work is about offering care, companionship and an active day which will accommodate your own very specific needs, abilities and preferences.
