New investment for people living with dementia in Oldham

To support Oldham’s commitment to improving the quality of life and quality of care for people with dementia, Oldham Council and Oldham CCG have jointly invested in enhancing the existing Memory Service.

The Memory Service currently offers a diagnostic service and a wide range of support for people found to have dementia and their families and carers. With this new investment, the service will now also support people living with dementia to continue to enjoy their hobbies and provide easier access to local community activities and groups. 

We are pleased to confirm that the new element of Oldham Memory Service will be provided by Making Space. 

We will work closely with the current providers to support people living with dementia in Oldham, to have easy access to a programme of activities suited to their own personal interests and aspirations. Carers will benefit from practical advice from dementia specialists and the peer and carer support groups that will also be on offer. 

Elaine Parker-Johnson, Chief Executive of Making Space said:

“We currently provide a number of specialist dementia services across Greater Manchester, and are delighted to now provide better access to leisure and community activities for people living with dementia in Oldham.”

The new service can be accessed by any route, including self-referral, by a carer, through the Memory Service or GP and other local agencies. Please contact Mohammed Ali on 07779 986624 or email us for more information.
