How we can help support you or your loved one

  • Memory Activities - Encouraging activities such as reading, looking at photographs, reminiscing, playing favourite games
  • Personal Hygiene - Assisting to maintain personal and domestic hygiene
  • Nutritional Support - Providing help with cooking, shopping and menu planning to ensure a healthy, balanced diet
  • Medicine & Prescriptions - Accompanying you to medical appointments, collecting prescriptions and medication assistance

  • Carer Respite - Sometimes, even our primary carers need some time off; we can take over temporarily to give them some time off to recuperate

Tamar Care Services are 'Dementia Friends'

We support the national and local work of the Alzheimer's Society in creating communities that are knowledgeable and supportive of our friends and neighbours that have dementia. We are 'Dementia Friends' and Kerry is also a 'Dementia Champion' - helping to educate and involve others in understanding dementia and how we can support people to lead fulfilling lives - this is something that we care very much about on both a personal and professional level.
