The new easy to access, Dementia Support Service for people affected by dementia will be available from 1st April 2022.

The contract has been awarded to Alzheimer’s Society by Buckinghamshire Council. This service replaces the Memory Support Service, which has been running across Bucks since 2016.

The new service will follow the Dementia Connect model, which has been endorsed in the NHS long term plan. This model provides timely information and advice to individuals, their family, friends or carers. This helps people affected by dementia to live well, for as long as possible. The service will include telephone and face to face support. Group Information sessions and self-management tools will also be provided. These tools include an online community, publications and factsheets, and a directory of services.

To find out more about the new service, including how to refer, join us at one our 45-minute virtual sessions:

Tuesday 15th March 2.30pm (Register via Eventbrite – for professionals only)

Wednesday 30th March at 2.30pm (Register via Eventbrite – members of the public)
