Wayfinding Dementia Information and Advice at Sage House

Dementia brings lots of questions, emotions and new responsibilities.

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 be available to support people living with dementia, their families, friends and carers.

  • Help you ‘find your way’ through the health and social care system

  • Provide accurate and accessible information

  • Support and signpost to the right services at the right time

  • Help individuals to live well with dementia

  • Provide emotional support for people living with dementia and their families

  • Help plan for the future including information when choosing and planning long term care
