Our residents are benefiting from a new approach to the care and treatment of people with dementia, including support for carers and family members.
Anyone worried about dementia, diagnosed with the condition, their families or carers can ask for help from our two Dementia Gateways. Dementia nurses from the Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group are linked to both Gateways. They offer ongoing unique, tailored advice and information including pre-diagnosis, post-diagnosis, short and long term support services and respite.
Please note that during the current Covid-19 outbreak our dementia gateways are closed. Our telephone helplines remain operational, please call 01384 813600 or 01384 813315 for information, advice and support.
We have a complete guide to Living with Dementia that contains details of the support and services on offer for people with dementia and their carers across the Dudley borough. This comprehensive booklet (below) has been produced by us in partnership with Dudley CCG, Dudley Group of Hospitals and Alzheimers Society.
Our Independent Living brochure also gives you detailed information on the full range of services available to help keep you safe, secure, happy, well and independent in your own home, including how to return to independence after a period of illness or hospital stay.
