   Alzheimer's Society Befriending Service    31 July, 2015

The Alzheimer’s Society has recently launched a new befriending service in East Berkshire for people living with dementia. The service aims to reduce social isolation as people with dementia are more likely to struggle with loneliness and depression.  Volunteer befrienders offer companionship and social contact and are carefully matched with people depending on their personality and interests to support them to continue to do the things they enjoy and feel part of the community. To find out more please contact Sara Uren or Liz Barr on 01628 626331 or go to https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/site/scripts/recruit_details.php?id=8979
