Dementia Family Support Service
The Lincolnshire Dementia Family Support Service has been funded by Lincolnshire County Council to help you if you have a dementia diagnosis, your family or carer. The service is delivered by specialist family support workers. The service provides information on dementia, advice on how to manage your condition and help you stay independent for as long as possible. Family support workers can also help you to navigate available services to find the right support for you.
Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people's perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition. Whether you attend a face-to-face Information Session or watch the online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. If you would like a free Dementia Friends Information Session please email Karen Stengel.
Boston Dementia Action Alliance
Organisations and individuals from across the Borough have come together to recognise the diversity of organisations needed to effectively support people with dementia and their carers in Boston. These organisations have pledged to recognise and respond to local patient and carers' needs as best they can in order to work towards Boston becoming a Dementia Friendly Community.
There is a Dementia Directory of Services for Boston, a copy of which is available below, which provides a whole range of support groups and useful information.
Support is available locally including care, advice, support groups, activity sessions, adaptive equipment, transport and residential care. Local information is regularly shared on the Boston Dementia Action Alliance Facebook page.
