Brief Description of Organisation

We are Alzheimer’s Society. We're a vital source of support and a powerful force for change for everyone affected by dementia.

Full Description of Organisation

Dementia devastates lives but dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society will be here for anyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by them.

We are the UK's leading dementia charity. Every day, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need our help. And we are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.

 

Our values are evident in what we do, how we do it and how we work together.

These are not just words on a wall, we live these every day in all our work.

Determined to make a difference: We're passionate, we're focused and we make a lasting impact for people affected by dementia.

Trusted expert: We're listening, we're learning and we use experience and evidence.

Better together: We're open, we combine our strengths and we achieve more together.

Compassionate: We're kind, we're honest and we don't shy away from challenges.

Through our values, we will make the greatest difference for people affected by dementia.

Whether you’re someone living with dementia, a fundraising supporter, a colleague from another organisation, an employee or a volunteer, these four values will shape your experience with Alzheimer’s Society.

 

Services in the Bath and North East Somerset

Dementia Support Service

Our dementia support workers offer information and practical guidance to help you understand dementia, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future. They offer information to people who are worried about their memory and ongoing support to people affected by dementia face to face, over the phone or in writing.

Singing for the Brain

Join our singing group where you can meet new people in a friendly, fun and social environment. Singing can improve your brain activity, wellbeing and mood. You don’t need to be a good singer to benefit. Join us for fun vocal warm-ups and sing a wide variety of familiar and new songs in a supported environment. The group is hosted by our skilled, compassionate and experienced group leaders. This group is delivered through face-to-face sessions or online.

Carer Information and Support Programme.

Our Carer Information and Support Programme (CrISP) provides support and up-to-date, relevant information in a group environment, where carers can share experiences and find out about local and national services that can offer support. The programme is run in a series of sessions which offers carers the opportunity to share experiences in a confidential and friendly environment with others in a similar situation. The sessions are run over Zoom.

Dementia Voice

Do you have first-hand experience of dementia? Help shape our work through Dementia Voice, and use your experience to ensure everything we do reflects the needs of people affected by dementia. We would like to open a Dementia Voice group in the Bath and North east Somerset area.
