Alzheimer’s Society | September 2018 | Keeping connected: The right support at the right time
Dementia Connect, is a new service being developed by the Alzheimer’s Society to keep in touch with and support people affected by dementia. The service, currently available in Penine Lancashire- where it is being piloted- involves specialist dementia advisers assessing and addressing the needs of people who either contact the service themselves or who are referred to Dementia Connect.
The new service provides a combination of face-to-face support with telephone and online advice, so people can access the help that they need, when they need it. It is part of The Alzheimer’s Society strategy New Deal on Dementia, which aims by 2022, for everyone affected by the condition to be offered information, advice and support (Source: Alzheimer’s Society).
