Do you have contact with carers of people with dementia living in Lambeth and Southwark? Have you considered peer support for them?
This peer support service is run in partnership with the Alzheimerâ€™s Society and the Modernisation Initiative and is available for any carers of people with dementia, whether the person with dementia lives at home or in a care home.
Peer support for carers is one to one support delivered by trained volunteers who themselves have cared for someone with dementia. These trained volunteers receive supervision from Dave Bell, Outreach and Support Worker at the Alzheimerâ€™s Society.
A sitting service is available should this be required.
For more information, or to arrange for the volunteers to speak to your team or your carers group contact Dave Bell.
For leaflets which describe the service contact Nicola.firstname.lastname@example.org
