> Individual Consultations – present and past

Angelika is providing one-to-one family information and support sessions.

Dementia Dialogue has been sub contracted to give specialist advice and support for unpaid carers. The work was part of a GP Outreach pilot project commissioned by Royal Borough of Greenwich and the NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group.

> Consultation sessions – available

In our experience just small changes, such as communication, activities, signage in the home of a person with dementia and/or their family members can help them to live well with dementia.

We can discuss coping mechanisms, stimulation ideas and dementia friendly environments.

We can arrange a free initial consultation.

Angelika has recently been writing book reviews for the Journal of Mental Health.
