Independence Service


Caring for someone with a form of dementia can be a very demanding and testing time. Carers of Barking & Dagenham can offer the following support to you, your family and the one you care for with our New Pilot Service.

We would like to provide a home visiting service, offering respite to carers while providing a service to the person with dementia enabling them to remain in their homes with support. A full risk and needs assessment would be undertaken by experienced dementia trained support staff, this will ensure that all identified needs are meet by trained and NVQ level 2 Health and Social care staff. The service offered will be a minimum home visit of 2 hours during which time an agreed activity programme will be actioned, this programme will be person centred and tailored specifically to each individual.

The cost of this service will be £12.50 per hour, invoiced monthly by Carers of Barking & Dagenham.

If you are interested in this service or would like to know more please contact Janet Bowl 0208 984 9940 / Angela Sanderson 0208 595 6828 Or please feel free to drop into The Memory Lane Resource Centre 234a Porters Avenue, Dagenham, Essex.
