I am determined to be as independent as possible and still like to get out and about. The weekly Remind zoom sessions, and the support I get from their staff is giving me the confidence to still manage.Read more about Frances' Story
Remind is a service delivering support to those living with dementia and their carers throughout Portsmouth. Through practical help and guidance, we help you maintain independence and connect with your community.
Following a formal dementia diagnosis, the Remind team can set up an initial home assessment visit, where specialist workers will help you, your carer or loved one to create a plan with the right level of ongoing support.
Your plan may include:
We fully recognise the vital role that carers play and we offer advice and emotional support. We'll always invite you to stay for a coffee and a chat whilst the person you care for attends the session.
You will need to be formally diagnosed with Dementia or support some with dementia, and currently live in a PO1-PO6 postcode.
We welcome those of all ages, genders and backgrounds, as our support is personalised to you.
NHS professionals can refer patients through the NHS System One.
Community organisations and professional carers can contact the service directly following a dementia diagnosis. A referral form must be completed and sent back to Remind via email or post.
Essential home visits to our most vulnerable and isolated clients have recommenced, however our group activities remain postponed.
Group sessions with dementia clients and carers are being delivered online and we are posting regular activity packs to those we support.
