Supporting carers of people with dementia and memory problems
Dementia carer support across Leeds
Carers Leeds provide specialist dementia carer support throughout the city in order to support carers of people living with memory problems or a diagnosis of dementia. In order to access this service carers can telephone the carers advice line on 0113 380 4300. We can offer one to one carer support by appointment at our central Leeds office, in your own home or in a community venue of your choice. We also offer telephone support to carers.
Dementia carer support in Leeds teaching hospitals
Carers Leeds offers a specific service to carers of people with dementia or memory problems in Leeds acute hospitals. We have a specialist Dementia Carer Support Worker based at St James’ hospital but they cover all Leeds hospital sites. Much of the work focuses on involving carers in discharge planning and ensuring carers are informed about services available to them in the community.
Carers Leeds and Community Links are working in partnership to provide a new day service for younger people with dementia.
A specialist Carer Support Worker from Carers Leeds is based within the Young Dementia Leeds team at Springfield day service in Cottingley providing information, advice and support to carers of younger people with dementia.
Since September 2013 Carers Leeds has been providing training to educate and support carers of people with a dementia to enable them to better manage their caring role. The courses focus on giving participants an understanding of dementia, how to access support as a carer, financial and legal affairs and planning for the future. The courses are facilitated by specialist dementia carer support workers.
Carers Leeds has run a successful monthly dementia café from our city centre premises since September 2012. Each month there is a speaker or activity organised with regular attendance from up to 20 carers and the person they care for.
