The door to Dementia Support
Sage House is a bespoke, modern and functional community hub where we bring local Dementia Support services together under one roof. We provide the latest support, information, advice and activities to those living with Dementia and their families.
Our Wayfinding Service allows everyone entering Sage House to talk to a professional for essential one-to-one support and advice. A familiar and friendly face will always be available to support people living with dementia, their families, friends and carers.
As well as providing Wayfinding to help guide families through their personal dementia journeys, we also offer:
Day Breaks - respite day care for people living with dementia
Activities - for people with dementia and their carers
Hairdressing Salon - dementia friendly hair specialists
Smart Zone - innovative technology to help ease daily tasks
Daisy's Café - community spaces serving hot and cold food & drinks
Established in 2014, Dementia Support is a charity that has been delivering integrated dementia services from its purpose-built hub in West Sussex for over 5 years.
The charity was the vision of several local people who had experienced dementia within their families and understood the lack of support and help available. They conducted a feasibility study which involved talking to people living with dementia, their families and carers and local dementia “professionals” which revealed that services were at best fragmented, that people did not know where to go or what to do once they had received a diagnosis or if they had concerns about memory or brain functioning – ultimately people felt alone and abandoned. The founders of Dementia Support felt passionately that those affected deserved better.
Our vision as a charity, is a society where dementia is wholly understood and accepted, enabling people living with dementia to be fully supported throughout the whole of their journey.
We're changing the narrative
Sage House is a centre of excellence delivering seamless, holistic and integrated care for people living with dementia.
We work in partnership with the NHS, County Council and other statutory, voluntary and charitable organisations from within the community - many of which are co-located with our team. Our innovative approach brings all dementia services into one welcoming, accessible and inclusive hub that puts the needs of those affected at the heart of what we do.
Sage House offers a range of dementia specific services, from information, advice, emotional support, group activities, respite care, to a quiet hair salon, bathing suite and therapy room and an accessible community café.
The environment has been designed to minimise confusion, with dementia friendly layout and accessible, bright open spaces – forget clinical, Sage House is bright and fresh in design.
