COVID-19 service status
Due to the closure of our Centres for the Community, the Dementia Services Social Groups are currently closed. In order to safeguard the wellbeing of our clients and carers, we have also suspended our monthly social evenings, which were held at the Claygate Centre.
Our Dementia Services Team remains committed to supporting our carers and clients during this time and are supporting with welfare calls, our Smile with Us newsletter, and our monthly carers support group.
We are also continuing to offer socially distanced guided walks for clients with the following safety procedures in place:
Walks are subject to assessment by a member of the Dementia Services Team to ensure we are able to support a client adequately.
Staff will meet clients on their doorstep at the start of their walk to avoid the need to enter the property.
Clients will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of the walk.
Staff will follow all appropriate safety guidelines including the wearing of PPE and regular use of sanitizer.
Our team are experienced Dementia Care specialists and will do everything to support our customers and carers with their unique needs.
Carers or clients can contact the team for information, advice and support on 01372 474 547 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Referrals will be made to external agencies where deemed appropriate to offer further support, advice and information.
For more information on the status of Council services, please see our Coronavirus (COVID-19) page.
