Who we are
The Dementia Wellbeing Service is a partnership between Alzheimer's Society and Devon Partnership NHS Trust and is responsible for delivering dementia services in Bristol.
The service has been designed to deliver a more personalised package of support for those living with dementia, covering all aspects of dementia care, from diagnosis to end-of life – providing care, support and guidance every step of the way. Our dementia practitioners can offer therapeutic interventions to support people and their families at difficult times throughout their illness, including intensive support for people with complex or challenging needs.
We work with various partners from across Bristol, bringing them together to create personalised wellbeing plans for people with dementia. Our dementia navigators work in a person-centred way to provide practical help, training and advice for people with dementia and their carers every step of the way. This includes identifying local groups and activities in the community that can maintain the independence and enhance the quality of life of the person with dementia, alongside information, guidance and emotional support. For family doctors, care homes, hospitals and other community groups, we provide education and training to help them deliver the best possible support for people affected by dementia.
"Each time I have been in contact with [my Dementia Navigator], I have been treated with kindness, empathy and they have been extremely supportive. My Navigator has always given me the time to explain my concerns and worries and always seems to have suggestions that are practical and helpful."
