Local Dementia Services
If you have dementia, or care for someone with dementia, it is important that you never feel alone.
Dementia is a condition affecting an ever-increasing number of people and I want to ensure that those affected in the Newark constituency know where they can find support.
I have put together a list of local services that provide support for individuals with dementia and their carers. These range from fun, social groups to information-providing services, and all are run by compassionate teams committed to helping you.
If you know of any additional services that aren’t mentioned on this page, then please let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling my office on 01636 612837.
