Respite / Breaks

Everyone needs a break to rest and recharge the batteries – and none more than people caring for family members with dementia. It can be helpful for everyone to have a break from each other from time to time and many care providers offer short stays or live-in arrangements. Or perhaps what is needed is a holiday away together?

Memory Aids

Sometimes a clever gadget can make all the difference. Assistive technology and telecare can help to support and enable people with dementia to live more independently. It is not for everyone but when the right products are found they can be very helpful.

Activities to do at home


It is notoriously difficult to get about in Wiltshire, but that shouldn’t stop you from doing anything. Whether you need help to get to an appointment or to keep in touch with friends, with the links below you can find some help with getting about:


Are you new to household chores because the person who usually takes care of it has a dementia? Is there just not enough time in the day to get it all done? Maybe there are specific jobs you need help with? Or is there someone you know who could do with a hand?

The links below were compiled in response to questions that came up when we asked people what they need help with. They include support with dog walking, shopping and maintenance around the home.

Help around the home

Meals delivered to your door


There are a number of ways professional support can enhance your life with dementia. The term ‘Care’ encompasses everything from a few hours of companionship, someone to help with personal care tasks that have become a little difficult to full time care. Care can be delivered in many ways. Sometimes it is enough to have a few ‘gadgets’ around the home which are monitored remotely to make you feel safe. We have grouped ‘care’ into sections. You can search on these links by postcode for providers near your home.
