Dementia Oxfordshire is a partnership between two charities, Age UK Oxfordshire and Dementia UK, who are bringing together their specialist expertise to develop and deliver a Dementia Support Service for people of all ages.
The service is free to use. It is supported financially by Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Oxfordshire County Council.
What we do
Dementia Oxfordshire supports all people with a diagnosis of dementia. Dementia UK provides the Young Dementia Oxfordshire service which offers specialist advice, information and support for people aged under the age of 65.
Our team consists of Dementia Advisers and Support Workers. We work with people diagnosed with dementia and their relatives/carers, providing ongoing support and information on the following:
– Information about dementia – How to get help locally – Staying independent – Adaptations for your home – Benefits and allowances for those with dementia and their carers – Additional support and respite breaks – Activities and leisure opportunities – Planning for the future – Financial and legal issues
Our support line
The Dementia Support Line is staffed by Dementia Advisers, who offer advice and guidance on dementia to everyone, including people with dementia, their relatives and carers, and health care professionals. Advice can be offered anonymously if preferred and the advisers have extensive knowledge of the services available in Oxfordshire
