Alzheimer’s Society Befriending Service

The Alzheimer’s Society Befriending service covers South East Northumberland and offers a chance for people with dementia to keep active and do the things they enjoy. If you have had a diagnosis of dementia you can refer yourself, or else be referred by a health or care professional.

Trained volunteers support the service and find it very rewarding – but they need more and would love you to join their friendly team.

Contact the Befriending Team on 01670 813255 or email northumberland@alzheimers.org.uk

See more about the Alzheimer’s society on pages 60 and 61 of Golden Guide  but note that the telephone number printed has now changed to 01670 813255.
