Do you look after someone who has dementia?
We’re here to help. We can provide information including practical tips on caring for someone with dementia, as well as ways to take care of your own health and wellbeing.
If you are caring for someone with dementia and would like to know more about how we can provide information, advice and support, please contact us. We have a range of support available, including the following:
Dementia Information and Advice Sessions
These sessions are hosted by a Carer Information and Advice Worker with expertise in dementia. They are free to come along and usually every third Tuesday of the month, 2:00pm—4:00pm at Newcastle Carers Centre. Carers are welcome to come to all or some of the sessions – sessions are very relaxed, friendly and welcoming and give carers a chance to:
- Meet other carers who may be in similar situations
- Share information around key concerns about caring
- Feel better informed and connected
To find out when our next Dementia Information and Advice Sessions are, see our What's On page.
Dementia Advice Centre Newcastle
The new Dementia Advice Centre Newcastle has been going from strength to strength!
The Centre was launched in November 2018 as an exciting partnership between Newcastle Carers and Dementia Matters, designed to provide support and information for people living with dementia, their families, friends and carers.
The Centre is based at the Outer West Customer Service Centre and is open for drop-ins Monday – Friday between 10:00am and 4:00pm, or you can ring on 0191 323 3342.
People can drop-in to access a range of dementia related services, from information for people living with dementia about staying independent and keeping active, to information, advice and support for carers around their role, entitlements and keeping themselves well.
See the Dementia Advice Centre website for more information.
The Dementia Advice Centre has been Funded by The Ballinger Charitable Trust and the Lloyds Bank Foundation.
