Welcome To The Bay Information Hub
The Bay Information Hub (formally The Bay Dementia Hub) takes place on the first Friday of every month, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm, at either The Cathedral Social Centre, Balmoral Road, Lancaster LA1 3BT, OR The Trimpell Sports and Social Club, Out Moss Lane, Morecambe LA4 4UP (see below for the Calendar of dates, venues and talks).
The Hub is a unique, community-based service with open access for the Bay's residents with dementia, Parkinson’s, MND, MSA and other neurological conditions, their families, friends and carers as well as anyone who may be worried about their memory.
What we do!
After a diagnosis of dementia, Parkinson’s or other neurological condition, it can sometimes be difficult to find out what support is available. The Hub is a friendly place where we can offer help and guidance in many areas of concern.
We hope to help people live independent and comfortable lives, to feel supported and to be kept informed of the services available to them. A wide range of professional people and organisations are on hand to offer help and advice.
Terry and Tina are ambassadors for MAC Clinical Research and Defying Dementia, and are regular Hub visitors.
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 Hub
The Bay Information 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 living with a neurological condition, such as dementia or Parkinson’s, as well as their carers, family and friends. 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.”
