Sandwell Dementia
Support Service

I love making you laugh because, for those few seconds, I made you happy..

At St Albans, we pride ourselves on being as inclusive as possible, looking at a person holistically, covering all aspects of their needs and taking their wishes into account.

Our dementia programme is designed with this in mind and offers free impartial and confidential advice, support and help both pre and post diagnosis to anyone living with dementia and/or their carers and family members.

We can assist with understanding diagnosis, planning for the future, financial implications and entitlements, support accessing services, understanding your rights, Power of Attorney, what happens next and more. We can also offer information and advice on possible solutions when a person with dementia has specific issues e.g. incontinence problems, trouble recognising familiar faces, changing behaviours etc.

Our qualified staff can support you to navigate your way around NHS services and ensure you receive the support you need.

Sandwell Dementia Navigators, a partnership between Crossroads, Agewell, Dementia Pathfinders, St Albans Community Association, Murray Hall Community Trust, West Bromwich African Caribbean Resource Centre, Alzheimers UK, BUDS and AGEUK Sandwell and is for people living with dementia and their carers.

The Sandwell Dementia Navigator service is designed to reach people in communities and care homes living with dementia with the aim of improving access to diagnosis and post-diagnosis support, equipping family carers with information, knowledge and skills and promoting positive community responses to enable people with dementia and their families and supporters to live well and with meaning and purpose.
