We offer mental health and emotional wellbeing support to those living with dementia, their carers, and families living in the Rochdale Borough.
Dementia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive conditions that affect the brain. When you or someone you love starts experiencing symptoms such as memory loss, confusion and speech difficulties it can be worrying. Our Dementia Wellbeing Support team is here to support all our communities across the Rochdale Borough so they don’t face this experience alone.
We offer one to one, face to face and group support to help all who are living with dementia, including carers and families, with the aim to empower and enhance the ability to live well.
We have a range of activities and open days planned throughout the year which are all free to attend. We support you right from the beginning of your journey, you don’t need to be diagnosed with dementia to reach out for our support, we are here for you.
Thank you to Rochdale Mind for what Mind is doing for carers. It is a relief to know there is help out there. Please do not think there is nobody. These people are wonderful and will support you through your struggles. It was like a weight lifted to know there is someone for Dementia Carers. There is help out there, you don’t need to feel alone.
