The Memory Support Service, which is commissioned by Buckinghamshire County Council, Aylesbury Vale Clinical Commissioning Group and Chiltern Clinical Commissioning group is now in its second year. It provides post diagnostic support for people with dementia and their carers and help people to develop coping strategies, provide appropriate information to allow people to manage their care and signpost to useful organisations to access assistance as needed. The service also offers memory screening assessments in people's homes for those who are concerned about their memories.
The Dementia Information & Support sessions are designed for people in the early stages of dementia and are delivered in the North and South of the county. These consist of six two-hourly sessions for groups of up to 10 people and include understanding of the diagnosis, tips & strategies to use to manage the condition, information about available services and there is also time to share with other members of the group.
Sessions are planned in January at the High Wycombe Library and in Aylesbury at the Healthy Living Centre in March for younger people with dementia. Please contact the Memory Support Service (see details below) for more information.
For individuals who are concerned about their memories, the Memory Support Service provides two hour Memory Information Sessions in various locations across the county. The sessions cover understanding of memory, coping tips and strategies and healthy living advice. There is no need to register and anyone who is worried about memory is welcome to join in.
Please do contact the Memory Support Service if you would like more information, a supply of leaflets or to arrange a meeting with a Memory Support Worker. Tel: 01296 331749 or Email: email@example.com
