Dementia, Frail and Living Alone

 

Ashfield Voluntary Action has a long history of supporting people in the community who are living with dementia, the frail, and those who are living alone.

 

AVA recognises that small and light touch support can make all the difference in helping people to remain independent for longer. Our work has focussed on providing low level support whilst simultaneously raising awareness and reducing stigma; particularly around dementia.   

 

We are delighted to have secured funding for a programme that pulls together these threads of activity to provide a more structured and robust approach to support Ashfield residents who are living alone, frail, or living with Dementia.

 

WHAT WILL THIS SERVICE OFFER?

 

  • A biannual Directory of Information and Resources for people living with dementia and their carers - available online and as a paper copy. The directory is currently being updated and we will add it to our website as soon as it is available.
  • Better signposting to services.
  • Availability of resources to support people living with Dementia including twiddle mitts and dignity bibs.
  • Equipment loan scheme - mobility aids etc.
  • Delivery of activities and services including befriending service and a range of activity groups.

 

More information on this service will be added to the website in the coming days, so make sure that you check our website regularly.
