How the team can help

  • The team will meet with the patient and their carer to talk about how they can help.
  • Any health problems, the nurse will be happy to give detailed advice.
  • Activity groups give individuals a chance to meet other people, share experiences and enjoy a range of activities like arts and crafts and games.
  • The team will help individuals make their homes safe and put them in contact with organisations that can give further support and advice.

The Remind team can set up an initial home assessment visit, where a specialist worker will help the diagnosed individual, their carer or a loved one to create a plan with the right level of ongoing support.

The personalised plan will include:

  • Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) which is an evidence-based therapy delivered in small groups to help memory, thinking skills, wellbeing, and confidence
  • Activity groups best suited to you and the support you need
  • Practical home support to help the individual and their carer continue to live independently
  • Help accessing local support and benefits they might need
