Dementia support

Dementia support

Support in Mind is a new service for Calderdale. Our team of specialist home care staff supports people with dementia and their families and carers.

An individual service
We recognise that each person experiences dementia in a different way. We understand that you may need help with one activity but be able to manage other tasks on your own. We want to encourage people to use and maintain the skills they have.

As well as assisting with daily personal care tasks, staff will support you to improve your communication and mobility skills. Our home support workers are specially trained to help you manage if you’re experiencing memory problems. The Support in Mind service is here to make sure that you are comfortable and well looked after.

We can help you find ways of coping with the anxiety and confusion that can be caused by memory loss. Your home support worker will provide advice and information, helping you and your family or carer come to terms with your illness and making sure that you know what to expect.
