Alzheimer’s Society Peterborough provides a range of services for people with dementia, their families and their carers. We are open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Please contact us for further information.
Someone to talk to
You can phone at any time during our opening hours to talk in confidence with a member of our Dementia Support Service. Alternatively come to one of our drop-in peer support groups: Mondays 2pm – 3.30pm for people with dementia and Wednesdays 10.30am – 12 noon for carers.
Dementia Advisers & Dementia Support Workers
Our Dementia Adviser provides individualised information and support to people with a diagnosis of dementia. Our Dementia Support Workers give one to one support to people with dementia, carers and family members. The service is unique to personal circumstances and the information and support needed. We can arrange for you to be visited at home or you can attend the Dementia Resource Centre to discuss your needs further.
Anyone who has dementia or is caring for a person with dementia is welcome to attend the Cafés which are held on Thursdays at selected venues. Each Café is staffed by Alzheimer’s Society workers and volunteers. We usually invite a guest speaker to talk at the café, this may be a solicitor, pharmacist or dietitian or anyone the group has expressed an interest in listening to.
The Carer Information and Support Programme (CrISP)
Our Carer Information and Support Programme is a series of five workshops for carers and family members of people with dementia. This programme aims to offer structured information to inform and support the caring role. Carers do not necessarily have to live with the person with dementia.
We offer a wide range of activity groups including Singing for the Brain, Current Affairs, Cognitive Stimulation and Arts & Crafts. These services give people with dementia the chance to meet others in a relaxed setting.
