Together Dementia Support needs your help to reach isolated people at this difficult time. We are a small charity supporting people living with dementia and their carers across Manchester and Trafford. We run regular activity groups to get people out of their homes and socialising.
The people we support were already isolated, but the current lockdown has made life harder. Many of them live alone, so they may only have bags of food delivered to their doorstep. Where people live with partners, carers are becoming isolated and stressed. Everyone is missing their routines and company, which are crucial for people living with dementia.
Our team is working hard to maintain regular phone/video contact with the people we support, providing a friendly face and familiar voice to them. We do telephone quizzes and sing together and send out activity/gardening packs tailored to relieve boredom.
People living with dementia could be stuck at home for several months more.
Can you help us to keep them as well
and positive as possible?
