We provide a range of services which are designed to enable people with dementia to maintain the active lifestyle of their choice and to provide respite and emotional support to the main care-givers. We currently offer one-to-one support for people with dementia, and we have activity centres in Braintree, Chelmsford and Southend-on-Sea for those with dementia and their carers.
