Lewisham Dementia Support Service Launched

We are proud to announce the launch of the Lewisham Dementia Support Hub for people diagnosed with dementia and their carers.

The Lewisham Dementia Support hub is a local partnership consisting of MindCare Dementia Support (part of Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind), Sydenham Garden, Carers Lewisham and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

The Lewisham Dementia Support Hub will provide a range of dementia support services including:

  • personalised support planning for individuals
  • individual support and workshops for carers
  • horticulture, arts and reminiscence groups
  • support for the Dementia Action Alliance and making Lewisham a more dementia friendly borough.

Ben Taylor, Chief Executive of Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind, said,

“The Lewisham Dementia Support Hub will make a great positive difference to people diagnosed with dementia and their carers and will draw upon the skills and expertise of established local organisations working together to provide support that meets people‚Äôs needs.

 

The Hub will help people find and access local dementia support, make informed choices about their lives and care and meet their unique, individual needs. Much needed support will also be available for the family and friends caring for someone with dementia.

 

With dementia affecting more and more people, it is very important that we support people with dementia to live well as valuable members of their local community.”

The service has been jointly commissioned by Lewisham Council and Lewisham NHS Clinical Commissioning Group.
