Dementia support still available despite pandemic

Dementia support still available despite pandemic

by Tom Martin (October 2020)

DESPITE the number of Covid cases on the rise, Alzheimer’s Society Sefton say they are still here to support anyone affected by dementia.

If you are worried about your memory, caring for a person with dementia or want to know more about this condition, Alzheimer’s Society’s team of Dementia Support Workers is here to help you and provide information by telephone and email throughout this pandemic.

Barry Lyon, manager for the Sefton area said: “Dementia does not stop just because we are in the midst of a pandemic. We know that social distancing and various other restrictions can put even more strain upon carers and we are here to provide vital information, answer questions about dementia and give you emotional support during these difficult times.

“We are running a number of virtual support sessions including Singing for the Brain, Memory Cafes and an information programme for carers. If you are struggling or you simply want a chat, please do get in touch.”

Alzheimer’s Society Sefton has a team of Dementia Support Workers to support you through the current situation and beyond. We also have an E-News service giving you regular dementia related information updates via email.

Anyone worried about their memory, living with dementia or caring for someone with this condition in Sefton can get in touch. Email sefton.office@alzheimers.org.uk or call Dementia Connect on 0333 1503456.
