The Alzheimer's society Leicestershire and Rutland provide a Dementia support service in Leicester City, Leicester County and Leicester Hospitals for carers and people with dementia. The dementia support service offers information and practical guidance both in the community and in hospitals to help carers and people with dementia to understand the condition, manage the hospital discharge process, cope with the day to day challenges and prepare for the future.
The support provided can be face to face, over the phone or in writing. Additionally, carers and people with dementia can attend one of our many Dementia support cafes or Carers Information and Support Programmes.
Dementia Memory cafes are held monthly in Leicester, Countesthorpe, Lutterworth, Loughborough, Coalville, Wigston, Glenfield, Melton Mowbray and Syston. Monthly peer support or activity groups are held in Market Harborough and Hinckley. Singing for the brain sessions are held in Blaby. Contact us for details of when and where all our groups meet.
Access to our service is via self referral or through Health and Social Care professionals by telephone, fax or email. The service has a dedicated telephone number 0116 231 6921
We also have an online shop where you can find out about and buy daily living aids and equipment to assist with dementia.
