Alzheimer's Society provides a range of support services for people with dementia, their families and their carers in Norfolk. Acting as a first point of contact, our Dementia Advice and Support Service can be accessed with a simple telephone call to 01603 763556. This service is established to provide information and advice about dementia, coping strategies, legal concerns, benefits and entitlements and is manned by a Dementia support Worker. A referral can then be made for ongoing support from a Dementia Support Worker if required.
Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Support Workers are happy to provide support over the phone, to make a home visit, or to meet a client in the community to provide information and advice about dementia, coping strategies, legal concerns, benefits and entitlements.
Alzheimer's Society runs a variety of monthly Support Groups across Norfolk to provide clients with information, advice and support from others in a similar situation and our stained staff and volunteers, in a safe and welcoming environment.
Alzheimer's Society runs a series of workshops for carers to help carers better understand all aspects of dementia and the caring role.
