COVID 19 / Coronavirus – We want to reassure everyone that although the Dementia Wellbeing Service has adapted its service delivery following government advice, our Access Point remains open to take your calls. Our Access Point is open Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. Please call 0117 904 5151. Whether you are already supported by our service or if you have a Bristol GP and have concerns about dementia, we are here for you.
Our Dementia Navigators are also making welfare check phone calls to everyone on our caseload and signposting them to appropriate support services wherever possible. We have also produced a Resources spreadsheet for staff which includes updates and links to additional support, whether this is with shopping or meals, medication or tips for exercise or stress and anxiety management whilst isolating. If you would like to speak to your Navigator, please also contact the Access Point.
