The Intensive Dementia Outreach Service supports people living with dementia and their carers to continue to remain within the community. There are two different services available:

  • Group sessions based at the Leyton Dementia Hub or at a different unit in Chingford. During these session people will undertake a stimulating range of activities, including gardening, interactive Magic Table sessions, Oomph gentle exercise, quizzes, music and games.
  • A home-visiting service where a member of staff will make regular visits to deliver support based around the person, focussing on their skills and strengths through activities such as arts and crafts or helping to make a musical play list.

The service also provides advice, guidance and signposting.

To qualify for the service you must have eligible needs under the Care Act 2014 and be referred by a social worker. Please note that there may be a charge for using the services, subject to financial assessment.

To find out more, please contact the Dementia Hub by email at dementia.hub@walthamforest.gov.uk or by phone on 020 8558 0647.
