Sharing the Care


Let us help you on your journey with dementia

Supporting someone with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia requires an insight into the psychological and emotional journey that both the sufferer and the carer travel, as well as a practical understanding into the illness itself. Sharing the Care are here to help you through this journey. We offer support and care to the person living with dementia, in Huddersfield and Kirklees, and their carers.

Aims

Sharing the Care aims to provide clients diagnosed with dementia a personalised service encouraging the maintenance of life skills and social interaction. We aim to guide the person with dementia and their carer through the experience of living with dementia. A key aim is to provide local support for carers living at a distance.
