Lean On Me

A new service providing time out and support for dementia carers

Support for carers

Lean on Me is a new service in Stafford. We are here to support carers of loved ones living with dementia. Our team of trained volunteers are here to help carers with their daily lives, needs, issues and concerns.

Our volunteers can provide time out for a few hours:

Attend dentist, doctors and hospital appointments
Allow carers to take part in social activities
Talk with people in similar circumstances and gain support within the community

We’re also here to encourage people with dementia to have more confidence in what they can do, rather than concentrating on what they can’t do. We aim to help people stay as mentally and physically active as possible.

You can also pick up a Volunteer Application Form at Limewood reception. You will need two forms of ID, either a passport or driving licence and a proof of address, such as a utility bill.

Whatever it is, however small, we’ll do our best to help. That’s what we’re here for.
