Welcome To The Bay Dementia Hub
The Bay Dementia Hub takes place on the first Friday of every month, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm, at either Lancaster Library, Market Square, Lancaster OR Trimpell Sports and Social Club, Out Moss Lane, Morecambe (see below for the Calendar of dates and venues). The Hub is a unique, community based service with open access for the Bay's residents with dementia, their families, friends and carers as well as anyone who may be worried about their memory.
We Are Here To Help!
A wide range of professional people and organisations are on hand to offer help and advice. Joe and Mavis have been coming to each event, and you can listen to how the Bay Hub has helped them.
Mavis cares for husband Joe who lives with dementia. In this video, Mavis talks about how the Hub has helped them.
Dr Penny Foulds from MAC Clinical Research and Lancaster University, talks about the benefits of being involved in research and why it is a positive thing to do.
At the Dementia Hub
The Bay Dementia Hub offers a large range of information and guidance which will be delivered in partnership with many organisations and individuals alike.
These services can offer a high quality support group for those with dementia as well as their carers. This comprehensive support group will come in the form of the services opposite.
“My wife Wendy received a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's back in March '16. The Bay Dementia Hub provides a regular opportunity to seek advice from a range of organisations which have expertise in a number of areas, which are relevant to people living with dementia and their carers. We have found that through speaking to specific organisations / individuals, together with information presented by the arranged speakers, we have always taken away something from each session. I like let Wendy know whenever there is a hub session approaching and she looks forward to a cup of tea and a cake (or two !) and giving the professionals that she has established a rapport with a hug ! As well as the hub, I also attend the Carers Peer Support Group, which more often than not falls the day before the hub. I would recommend this also as it provides an informal way to hear how other people deal with certain situations and provide ideas with how you might manage your own journey of caring for a person living with dementia.”
