Services for people living with dementia in Lambeth
Our Lambeth services are still running on a virtual basis whilst we reopen our services
In July 2019, Age Exchange were awarded the contract for the Supporting People with Dementia Project, funded by the Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group. After the success of our weekly group, The Wellbeings, run from Lingham Court in Stockwell, which provides support, friendship and activities for people living with dementia and their carers, we have since begun two additional groups. Age Exchange launched The Living Well Group in West Norwood in February 2020, which has seen referrals from the Alzheimer’s Society and the Sensory Support Service, as well as individuals who have self-referred. The Living Well group is situated in Cheviot Gardens, an attractive, newly built sheltered housing scheme. As with The Wellbeings, the group is open to people living with dementia and their carers, who take part in a range of fun and creative reminiscence arts activities.

Our third Lambeth service, Café Create, is for people living with young onset dementia and their carers. This weekly group meets weekly in the West Norwood Library & Picturehouse on Tuesdays from 12 - 2pm. The location is vibrant and welcoming, with access to the Picturehouse bar/café, the community library and the lounge area with free Wi-Fi. We are aware there is a scarcity of specific services available to support people living with dementia who were diagnosed aged 65 and under. Many existing groups are aimed at older adults and do not feel relevant for people experiencing dementia at a very different time in their life. We aim to give younger people affected with dementia a chance to meet others similarly placed to share challenges and achievements and have the opportunity to try different activities in a friendly, creative space.
