Our experienced and dedicated team of Dementia Advisers keep in regular touch with families. 

They provide confidential advice and up-to-date information that can help people to understand more about dementia and what might happen in the future, and to make informed decisions about care, treatment and support.

They can help people affected by dementia and their families find out about the services that are available in the community, make referrals and generally 'open doors' to available support. They take as their starting point the fact that everyone will have differing needs and preferences, and the kinds of things they can help with include arranging community activities, day care, occupational therapy, respite care, advice on nutrition or speech therapy, emotional support, financial benefits and much more. 

Dementia Advisers will visit at home or meet people privately at GP surgeries. They will discuss their needs and work with them to draw up a Support Plan. This will be reviewed every six months, although people can talk to their adviser at any point as their situation and needs change.

This free service is funded by Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

What they say

Chris spoke to me in plain English and told me so much. When he left I felt 50 times better than before he arrived. A smashing man. Just what we needed at that moment
