Home Visiting Service

Launched in April 2015, as a recognised need to extend the services of the Poppy Café, the Home Visiting Service aims to provide additional support for people with dementia, their carers and families: in their own home environment.

The Home Visiting Service

  • Respite is offered for family members or carers who look after those with dementia in their own homes.
  • Our volunteers offer company, support and reassurance to the client, enabling carers to take time out.
  • Risk assessed, planned, co-ordinated visits are provided by trained volunteers.
  • The visits vary in length or time, up to a maximum of 3 hours.
  • Weekly, fortnightly or monthly visits are pre-arranged to suit both the clients’ and their families’ needs.
  • There is no charge for the service although donations are invited to help cover the expenses.
