Dementia in Southampton
Southampton is a city with 270,000 residents, and there are about 500 families living with dementia in various stages of the illness.
At diagnosis of dementia, there is some support and advice which focuses on education, tests, defines any problems, and gives initial advice and support.
However, as time goes on, there is less support from a specialist service, and the care of the carers is supported by the NHS Admiral Nurses, trained especially in helping families and individuals cope with living with dementia.
Dementia is a long-term illness, lasting several years. Caraway aims to provide regular support to families living with dementia.
The Caraway Dementia Team offers a growing number of Dementia Services for families living with dementia in Southampton, UK.
