One to One Support
It is recognised that not all people wish to participate in group activities or are able to access a group. We provide one to one support, where appropriate, so that people are encouraged to choose an activity that is of personal interest to them that can be carried out with the support of one of our Young Dementia Project Workers.
We also offer one to one support when introducing newly referred people to our services to make the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
"Mum is having fun again even if she is just living in the moment."
Examples of one to one support are going for walks, going out for coffee or lunch, swimming, board games and attending local community projects. The one to one support has facilitated some individuals to volunteer for other charities such as Centre Point, thus promoting the individual’s sense of purpose but also enabling reciprocal support and learning. One to one support can lead to the individual then gaining the confidence to join a group, but in most cases it is offered where an individual has quite specific needs e.g. problems with sequencing or more severe impairment.
