A Joint Venture

Halesworth Dementia Support Project


Halesworth Dementia Support Project is a three way project established jointly by Halesworth dementia Carers’ Fund, Alzheimer’s Society and Cutlers Hill Surgery.

They each bring their own strengths and skills to the project. A trained Dementia Support Worker has been seconded to work in Halesworth and the surrounding area for two days a week. The Support Worker sees people living with dementia and their carers on a one to one basis, either in their own homes or elsewhere, as they wish. The Support Worker also runs a monthly peer support group for carers and has held an intensive six week education programme for carers covering topics ranging from understanding dementia to legal and financial issues.
