Support at home in Swansea

Each local authority area has a Community Resource Service which brings together a range of support from Social Services, health services and third sector organisations to help people stay independent in their own homes.

Voluntary organisations in your area may also offer a time-limited hospital discharge support scheme.

People living with dementia can benefit from a range of group or individual therapies involving social interaction and mental stimulation, including reminiscence. Your local Alzheimer’s Society branch can give you information on local groups, activities and support.
