Dementia Support Workers help people with dementia, carers and families to improve understanding of dementia, maintain their independence, improve their sense of well-being and take control of their own lives.

Dementia Support Workers:

  • provide one-one support in the person’s home
  • provide information on the behavioural changes a person with dementia may experience and offer a range of techniques and strategies that may help
  • signpost to other relevant support
  • support people to make informed decisions about legal and future care arrangements
  • provide information about benefits available
  • work in partnership with other statutory and voluntary  services.
