Singing for the Brain
An innovative project providing structured musical stimulation for people with dementia and their carers. Singing is an enjoyable activity and provides a way for people with dementia to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun, supportive group. Groups run once a month. There are currently two Singing for the Brain groups per month in Rotherham for more information contact: 01709 580543.

Carers Resilience Service
Carers Resilience is a new integrated service: Crossroads Care and Alzheimer’s Society will work together to provide Link Workers for all GP Practices across Rotherham. The service is specifically for carers of people living with dementia in their own homes. It works to build confidence and resilience by offering: a full assessment of the needs of the carers by a Dementia Adviser; fast track to immediate short term in-home respite care where necessary; support for carers for up to one month; signposting on to other services as required.

To be referred into this service please contact your GP, or visit a carers clinic. To find out where the carers clinics take place contact Crossroads Care Rotherham 01709 464574

Social Prescribing Service Specialist Dementia Support
This service connects people with dementia to their local community to reduce isolation and to enable people to continue to access groups and activities they are interested in. This is a referral only service via your own GP.
