Support and advice for those living with dementia, their carers or family members in Portsmouth.

What is it?

Remind logo

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:

  • Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) which is an evidence-based therapy delivered in small groups to help memory, thinking skills, wellbeing and confidence.
  • Activity groups that give you the chance to meet others, share experiences and enjoy activities like arts and crafts, games and exercises to keep your mind engaged.
  • Practical home support to help you continue to live independently.
  • Help accessing local support and benefits you may be entitled to.

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.

Remind is delivered in partnership with Rowans Hospice and Solent NHS Trust.

Who is it for?

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.

Frances' Story

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.
