Our story

The service supports people to live well for as long as possible. We work to make sure everyone can stay connected to their local communities and maintain a sense of meaning and purpose in their life.

Dementia Oxfordshire is a free service provided by Age UK Oxfordshire, in partnership with Dementia UK. We provide information, advice and support to people living with dementia and their carers from the point of diagnosis. We do not discharge until end of life or a move to a care home.

We support all people with a diagnosis of dementia. This is made possible through our partners, Dementia UK, who provide the Young Onset Dementia service in Oxfordshire which offers specialist advice, information and support for people under the age of 65. 

Our team consists of Dementia Advisers and Support Workers who continuously work with people diagnosed with dementia and their relatives/carers, providing ongoing support and information on the following: 

  • Information about dementia 
  • How to get help locally 
  • Staying independent 
  • Adaptations for your home
  • Benefits and allowances for those with dementia and their carers 
  • Additional support and respite breaks 
  • Activities and leisure opportunities 
  • Planning for the future 
  • Financial and legal issues 

Our Support Line

The dementia support line is staffed by Dementia Advisers, who offer advice and guidance on dementia to everyone, including relatives, carers, and health care professionals. Advice can be offered anonymously if preferred and the advisers have extensive knowledge of the services available in Oxfordshire. 

Our support line is available 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday on 01865 410 210. 

Alternatively, or for out of hours support call the Dementia UK support line where you can speak to an Admiral Nurse on 0800 888 6678.

We provide support for people living with dementia, their families, and carers in a way that is evidence-based and person-centred. The aim of this approach is so that not only will your support be tailored to your specific needs, but it will also be effective.
