Rutland Dementia Support Service (Age UK)

**In line with government advice, the majority of social and wellbeing groups and activities remain closed during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. Some sessions are now being run virtually

A helpline has also been launched, offering practical and emotional support, especially to those who are self isolating and live alone.

To contact the helpline, call 0116 299 2239.**

 We act as a single point of contact for people with dementia living in Rutland, their carers and health and social care professionals. We offer a 6 week intensive support which will identify your needs and agree with you what you want to achieve. We also provide information about services, how to access them and we’ll signpost you to sources of ongoing support to help you when the 6 week period of our intensive support ends.  

We run a peer support group and activity group through which you can find advice and support about living well with dementia, and which opens up opportunities to share experiences with other local people facing the same challenges. Please get in touch for details.

We offer MCST (maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy) sessions on Tuesdays, 10.30am – 12pm (booking required).
