Exciting new service

Do you have or do you care for some-one with

Dementia or Alzheimer’s or has Down’s Syndrome

We are working closely with the Alzheimer’s society and we can help you and the person you care for;


What can we do?

·          You can have an appointment here in the practice or we can arrange a home visit for you with one of the society’s trained workers

What will they help me with?

·          Dementia Support Service –one to one information and support for carers and people with Dementia. We aim to provide information on the illness, to increase understanding and help clients to identify coping strategies. The Dementia Support Team signpost and refer to a wide range of services and provide information on private organisations that may help.

·          Dementia Advisor Service works with people who are newly diagnosed with Dementia providing information and signposted. They work with you throughout the journey of the illness

·          Peer Support Groups – an opportunity for you to meet others in similar circumstances and to gain support

·          Dementia Café – an informal café setting where you can learn about Dementia and receive support from their peers.

·          Carers Information and Support Programme – a series of six sessions giving cares information about Dementia, coping strategies, legal and financial aspects, and looking after themselves. There are two courses designed to meet the needs at specific points in the illness.

The staff from the Alzheimer’s Society have a range of backgrounds – NHS, Social Care, other voluntary organisations, many have personal experience of caring for people with Dementia. They have comprehensive checks before commencing work including Disclosure and Barring Service checks , which are regularly reviewed. Before working with clients they have comprehensive training, organised by the Alzheimer’s Society and Cambridgeshire County Council which is regularly updated.


During the initial appointments we will spend time establishing a true picture of what is happening, we will work with you to increase your knowledge of Dementia, and help you to find coping strategies. We will ensure that you are receiving the financial support that you are entitled to. When appropriate we will carry out a carer’s assessment so you can access Cambridgeshire County Councils services for carers. We will make any referrals required. We will see you as often as necessary – for some that may be only once, others may need support for a considerable time to come. The Society has an ethos of person centred approach so all the support we provide will be tailored to meet individual need.
