Dementia support

Providing support for people living with dementia and their carers in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

The DIAL project supports people living with dementia and their carers in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Funded by the Big Lottery, the project delivers much needed services that improve the lives of people living with dementia and those who care for them.

“What are your interests and your ambitions?”  aren’t questions we usually associate with dementia care, but DIAL turns these expectations around. In place of focusing on a medicalised version of the condition that looks purely at symptoms and safety, each individual’s all-round needs are considered.

The benefits of spending time with friends, being part of our communities, and taking part in exercise are well researched and documented. DIAL is committed to putting each of these important aspects of wellbeing into action, with tailor-made support that helps the individual develop a sense of fulfilment, whilst keeping their minds active and stimulated.

Building self-esteem and confidence, the project helps people to stay in their homes for longer, with less time spent in hospital and indicates that physical activity may slow the onset of dementia.
