Remind, Dementia Support in Portsmouth
The Remind team delivers a high quality advice and support service to dementia patients and their carers across the Portsmouth area. Our team consists of highly motivated, compassionate professionals who are ready and willing to support you and people who care for you.
How can we help?
Following a diagnosis of dementia by your GP, we will arrange to meet with you either during one of our appointment sessions or we will arrange a more in depth meeting to complete an initial assessment. An initial assessment will be in the comfort of your own home, with a Remind staff member, your carer and yourself.
Together, we will agree on a plan that is tailored to you. The level of service and support provided by us will depend on your holistic needs. Examples of our support may include:
- Remind work alongside the NHS Older Persons Mental Health Team (OPMH) at St Mary’s Hospital, Portsmouth. Together with their staff, we often carry out joint home visits to dementia clients. If you are worried about any health problems, one of our dementia nurse specialists can offer advice.
- Remind delivers Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) and hold activity groups across Portsmouth. These groups give you the chance to meet others, share experiences and enjoy a range of activities including exercises to keep your mind sharp. We also focus on fun activities like arts and crafts and games. Remind groups are extremely popular and have proven to be beneficial during your dementia journey.
- Remind can help you with practical things, from preparing your home to best suit you to continue to live independently, to advising you what benefits you may be entitled to.
