Home Visiting Service

Launched in April 2015, as a recognised need to extend the services of the Poppy Centre, 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 offers:

  • Respite for carers who look after those with dementia in their own homes.
  • A risk assessed, planned, co-ordinated visit provided by trained volunteers.
  • Our volunteers offer company, support and reassurance to the client, enabling carers to take time out.
  • Visits are pre-arranged to suit both the clients’ and their carers’ needs.
  • The duration of each visit is 2 – 3 hours.
  • The service is free but donations are gratefully received.
