Hillingdon Dementia Support provided by Alzheimer's Society
Tel: 01923 842444
Dementia support workers offer information and practical guidance to help understand dementia, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future. This includes helping you to access other support services, help you feel supported and maintain independence, choice and control over your caring role. They offer support face to face, over the phone or in writing.
There are several cafes for people with dementia where you can take the person you care for and meet other carers for information and support:
Templeton Centre, United Reform Church, Joel Street, Northwood Hills
Fortnightly on Tuesday 10:30am-12:30pm with Julia
Hayes & Harlington Community Centre, Albert Road, Hayes
Fortnightly on Fridays 10:30am-12:30pm with Madhuri
The Dementia Cafe provides information about living with dementia and other services available locally in an informal and comfortable environment. The Café is also a place to relax, socialise and meet other people with dementia and their carers.

Harlington Hospice also provides a comprehensive Caring with Confidence course
for those of you who are supporting someone who has been diagnosed with dementia.
These are really beneficial and valuable courses.
The person you care for can be looked after and given fun activities with Harlington Hospice staff whilst the course takes place and you can both stay for a three course hot lunch together afterwards.
Transport can be provided if you might find it difficult to get there.

Hillingdon Dementia Action Alliance
Hillingdon Council and the Hillingdon Alzheimer's Society have come together to set up Hillingdon Dementia Action Alliance.
The aim is to create a dementia-friendly community in Hillingdon, where there is a greater awareness and understanding of dementia. We want individuals with dementia, and their carers to feel supported to remain independent and have choice and control over their lives.
We will be holding a meeting on Wednesday 5 December at the Beck Theatre from 1pm to 3pm, which is open to anyone (residents and organisations) wanting to find out more about Hillingdon becoming dementia friendly.
