When a family member is diagnosed with onset of Dementia, it can be a very worrying time for the individual as well as their family.
Fortunately, there is now a much greater understanding of Dementia and strong support from healthcare professionals and the local community, to help a person living with Dementia to plan ahead, make choices, continue doing the things that make them happy and maintain a good quality of life.
In Herefordshire, there is an extensive network of local support for individuals and families living with Dementia, but it’s not always easy to know where to go for support, or know what kind of support you may need. Dementia Family aims to help with this, by providing information on the local support available to you.
Dementia Family is also a place to find out about Dementia-Friendly events and opportunities for individuals and families to share their experiences through their stories (See ‘Dementia Shared: My Story’ below) and regular coffee meetings.
We hope that you find this information useful. We will keep adding ideas, so if you have anything you would like to add onto this site that you feel individuals living with Dementia and their families would be interested in, please do get in touch! Click Here
