Being diagnosed with dementia is a daunting prospect, but having a diagnosis means that you can take positive steps to maintain your independence and plan for the future.

We can support you from early diagnosis right through to the later stages of dementia.

Many people living with dementia feel happier if they can continue living in their own home and can maintain their independence - we can support you to do just that. We can help you with daily living, personal care, keeping safe, and accessing local community groups and day services.

Sometimes it may be necessary to move into a care home or dementia friendly accommodation. Although this is a difficult decision to make, and can be emotional for both the person living with dementia and family and friends, it can be for the best. We will work compassionately with you to ensure that the proper planning and preparation is carried out and keep the move as stress free as possible.

We have an established network of quality, dementia-friendly care homes and short and long-term residential accommodation services, with varying levels of support depending on needs and preferences.

We currently provide dementia care and support to hundreds of people across the country. Working closely with a variety of other services and national initiatives, such as the Dementia Action Alliance, memory clinics, Admiral Nurses and housing associations, we ensure that you get the quality, personalised support that you deserve.

Caring for a loved one living with dementia can take its toll on your own health and wellbeing, physically and emotionally. Our carer support services can support you in your caring role, to enjoy your time outside of your caring role, and help you to access other services and meet other carers.

Our community day services offer a safe and welcoming environment for you to visit in your local community. Whether you need an extra bit of support, advice around health and wellbeing, or want to meet new people, our services are open to you.

Our dementia cafés and ‘drop in’ sessions are extremely useful for everyone. Whether you are living with dementia, are caring for someone who has dementia, have concerns over your memory or are simply interested in finding out more about dementia - everyone is welcome.

DEEP (Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project) groups are peer-led groups that work together to change/improve services and policies that affect the lives of people with dementia.

Our dementia law clinics can provide you with free legal, admiral nursing and communication support surrounding the many complex issues you may face when caring for a person living with dementia. These may include: home disputes, powers of attorney, provision of care, lack of capacity and more.

It is a free service, set up in partnership with the Legal Advice Centre at the University of Manchester, and is the first holistic clinic of its kind in the country.

For people living with dementia that find their homes have become unsuitable for their needs, or that they need more support, we have a range of extra care housing schemes that are dementia-friendly.

Extra care is an ideal choice if you want to continue living in your own home, but have a range of services available if you need or require them.

We can help you to enjoy and active and fulfilling life while continuing to live in your own home. We can help you with medication, diet and exercise, washing, dressing, mobility and attending appointments.

We have 2 independent hospitals that provide holistic care within a therapeutic environment. Our motivated and highly skilled team of professionals provide expert care for residents/patients living with complex dementia syndrome and people living with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.

Our musical memories groups give you the chance to sing-a-long to some of the biggest hits of past decades and keep active, both mentally and physically.

If you are living with, or caring for a loved one with dementia, our memory and activity groups could give you just the opportunity you have been looking for to carry on making the most of your hobbies and interests in a warm and friendly environment.

Our Doncaster Admiral service is a pilot service that has been developed in partnership with Doncaster Dementia Strategic Partnership, and other industry leading health and social care providers, to provide access to both an Admiral Nurse and dementia advisors.

In Oldham we are part of the Dementia Action Alliance, working together to shape policies and attitudes to radically improve the lives of those living with dementia.

We currently have 10 residential care homes, all rated Good by CQC.

We have over 80 supported housing services across the country including extra care, shared housing, and supported accommodation and living projects. Many of these services specialise in dementia care.
