Lean on Me - Support for Carers

Thu 24 Jan 2019

Lean on Me is a new service in Stafford.  We are here to support carers of loved ones living with dementia.  Our team of trained volunteers are here to help carers with their daily lives, needs, issues and concerns.

Our volunteers can provide time out for a few hours:

  • Attend dentist, doctors and hospital appointments
  • Allow carers to take part in social activities
  • Talk with people in similar circumstances and gain support within the community

We're also here to encourage people with dementia to have more confidence in what they can do, rather than concentrating on what they can't do.  We aim to help people stay as mentally and physically active as possible

Knowledge and understanding of dementia

Lean on me is part of Limewood specialist dementia care centre and their Dementia Outreach Service.  It has been set up by people with specialist knowledge of both dementia and the help and support that is available in our local community.
