Reconnect – support for people with Dementia or memory problems
Reconnect is a free service that offers practical support to people, throughout Somerset, with dementia and memory problems. We visit people in their homes weekly, usually for approximately an hour, for a maximum of two years. We support people to manage their paperwork and finances and ensure they’re receiving the correct benefits. We can also support them to access social opportunities, maintain a safe home and find solutions to the issues that memory problems often bring. Anyone can refer to our service.
We can help you if;
– You live in Somerset
– You are 65 years+ old and experiencing memory loss
– You are under 65 and have a diagnosis of dementia
To access our service, all we require is a completed referral form. Anybody can refer to our service, as long as the person that they are referring agrees to this. We can forward referral forms via the internet, alternatively we are happy to assist people to complete one over the phone.
