If you or someone you know is living with dementia, we may be able to help
Our Together at Home service allows people living with Dementia who are unable to attend our groups the opportunity to take part in social activities, creative activities and gentle exercise.
There are a range of reasons why a person may not be suitable for group-based support, and TDS strives to ensure that every person referred to us has the opportunity to access our support to enable them and their carers to live positively with Dementia.
What is Together @ Home?
Together at Home matches trained volunteers with a person living with Dementia in their local community who they will phone or visit at home once a week to take part in a range of different at-home activities.
- Creative Activities -
- Gentle Exercise -
- Skills Maintenance -
- Trying New Things -
- Making New Friends -
What does a Together at Home
session look like?
A Social Call
A cup of tea, a chat with a friend, watching some TV or listening to radio - whatever you would like to do!
A Local Walk
Around the block, a visit to the shops or a ramble around your local park.
Arts, crafts, cognitive and strategy games - whatever you prefer! Making and playing are important for skills maintenance.
Sessions are usually 1.5 hours long
A session can be anywhere between 30 minutes or 2 hours,
depending on the person being visited and what they would like to do.
