Dementia Friendly Purbeck

Striving to become a dementia friendly community

Swanage and Purbeck development trust

Dementia Friendly Purbeck is part of

the Swanage & Purbeck Development Trust

A dementia diagnosis can come as a shock to the person with the condition and those around them. However, there are sources of help and support for everyone involved.

Dementia Friendly Purbeck was formed to help raise community awareness of the impact of dementia and to provide a range of support for people with dementia and their carers.

Working closely with other dementia services in the community, we can provide practical help, advice and in cases of need, financial help for the purchase of equipment or to make it possible for people with dementia and their carers to take part in activities and excursions.

This website is your key to Purbeck’s dementia community;

Our events page lists regular local activities and meetings for people with dementia and their carers. The resources page provides contacts for all the local groups who can provide advice and help.
