Dementia Together Wirral

Dementia Together Wirral provides relief from the social isolation experienced by those affected by dementia living together with their all-important carer. The day-to-day challenges faced by those affected by dementia often go unseen, but can be limiting to continue a normal life - such as the stress and confusion caused in social environments. Public reaction to their quirks of behaviour, speech or movement, may cause those with dementia to become reclusive and reluctant to share in gatherings. This social isolation from the community, friends and even family, deprives people of a sense of purpose and hope, and negatively affects their confidence and mental health. Our activities provide an opportunity to socialise with new friends who understand, in a safe environment, where they are supported by our volunteers and their peers - who can signpost them to other supportive organisations if necessary.
