Help with Living with Dementia – Message from The Alzheimer’s Society

Living with dementia can have a big emotional, social, psychological and practical impact on a person. But Alzheimer’s Society in Mid Sussex offers a variety of services to support people with dementia and their carers to enable them to live well with dementia. These include:

  • Dementia Support – help people take control of their lives and make sense of what is happening. From understanding benefits to how dementia progresses and the importance of getting your financial affairs in order – Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Support Workers are there to explain about the condition but also signpost people to the support services available.
  • Carers Groups – These groups gives people the opportunity to meet with others who understand some of what they are going through. The sessions offer a chance to ask questions, get information and share experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Activity Groups – From yoga and Thai Chi to art and drama workshops, Alzheimer’s Society’s activity groups enable people with dementia to keep physically and mentally active.  They also help people express themselves and improve their sense of wellbeing.
  • Dementia Cafes – the cafes provide an opportunity for people to socialise and get much needed face to face support and provide people with dementia and carers a platform to talk openly about living with dementia within a relaxed and informal environment.
