Support for people with Dementia

Derby City Dementia Service

If you live in the Derby City area and you, or a member of your family, or a person you care for, experience the symptoms of dementia, then Making Space can support you to live an active and fulfilled life.

Making Space has a clear vision: that you have the right to continue doing what you have always done, for as long as possible.

Contact Making Space or visit their website for more information on the support they offer.

Alternatively you can contact the Alzheimer's Society's National Dementia Helpline on 0300 222 1122 for information, support, guidance and signposting to other appropriate organisations. The helpline is usually open:

  • Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm
  • Saturday and Sunday 10.00am to 4.00pm.

The Hardy Group – “Life Doesn’t End with Dementia”

The Hardy Group is centred on Derby and its surrounding areas. It is a thriving group of people living with dementia as well as current and past carers who, through their own experiences, support each other along their journey with dementia.

The group has a very wide age range from the under 60s to the over 90s!

They hold light-hearted social meetings and organise trips out to help all our members stay socially, physically and mentally active so that they can (and do!) live well with dementia. For more information visit the Hardy Group website
