Set up in 2011 Dementia Support South Lincs is a registered, independent charity now supporting more than 250 families in Bourne, Stamford and The Deepings area who are affected by some form of dementia or memory loss.
We believe having dementia doesn’t mean losing your identity or individuality.
Dementia Support South Lincs focuses on the person behind the condition. Our Dementia Support Workers offer emotional support and one-to-one advice and information through home visits, telephone, e-mail contact and our quarterly newsletter.
We believe that every person affected by dementia should be supported by people who reassure them, give them courage and confidence.
People with dementia and their carers are welcomed into a supportive and friendly community environment with therapeutic activities and social events run by our Dementia Support Workers, volunteers and Trustees. These groups can be a time to share experiences and make friends.
We believe that every person living with dementia should be treated with respect.
We campaign to make a difference with politicians both at a local and national level, with Clinical Commissioning Groups and Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust to determine policies around dementia care.
We actively support national initiatives such as Alzheimer’s Society-led Dementia Friendly Communities programme, working with towns, churches, shops, banks and organisations in the local area. We work with other community sector organisations through our involvement with South West Lincs Care Consortium.
