Dementia Help and Support

Sight and Mind is a Community Interest Company (CIC) proudly embedded within the borough of Knowsley. With dementia increasingly prevalent in families across the borough, Sight & Mind was launched in 2018 to provide complimentary help and support to families caring for a loved one with Dementia and/or Sensory Impairment. We will walk with you, side by side, through the maze to ensure you feel heard, valued and have the knowledge you need of the statutory and voluntary services available from the point of diagnosis through to advance stages.

We are also passionate about educating and empowering individuals, families and organisations. Our training courses will give you a greater understanding of the barriers that individuals with Dementia and/or Sensory Impairment face along with practical solutions to help with everyday routines that also take into consideration the wellbeing of the carer and the cared for.

 

We're here to help

  • Tailored help and support for individuals and families living with Dementia and/or Sensory Impairment.
  • Dementia Awareness Training – improve your knowledge and understanding of how to care for someone living with Dementia.
  • Visual Impairment Awareness Training (VIAT) – understand the additional needs and concerns of those living with vision loss/impairment.
  • Consultancy Services

News & Updates

Sight and Mind have been an enormous help in supporting my mum and myself since March last year. They have worked closely with mum, assessing her needs and have been successful in getting her the help she is entitled to from several different agencies including being awarded attendance allowance and receiving aids that support her around the house due to her being hard of hearing and reduced sight. 
 
Sign and Mind staff are excellent, they are caring and effortless in all that they do, nothing was too much and they have supported my mum over the phone through the time they have been working on her behalf, keeping her up to date every step of the way.
 
We are extremely grateful for such a wonderful service provided by this organisation so thank you all it’s been truly appreciated.

Since getting support from Sight and Mind, I have successfully received higher rate attendance allowance that I didn’t know I was entitled to. The extra money has made a massive difference to me because I no longer have to worry about putting the heating on. Sight and Mind have spoken with social services and other relevant departments and they are arranging for various adaptions and aids to maintain my independence at home and help me feel safer. I’m now waiting for my bath to be replaced with a shower as getting into the bath is a struggle and I’m worried about falling.

I can’t believe the difference Sight and Mind has made to me and my life and how much they have told me about everything that is available to me. I would recommend Sight and Mind to everybody.

“I am indebted to Sight and Mind for their ability to improve my parents lives. Prior to the pandemic, they were in regular contact with my mother and father, both of whom have medical issues, when the nearest close relative was more than 200 miles away. The support of this company enabled my parents to realise their entitlements due to my father’s condition with the gradual loss of his sight, his associated vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. My mother is my father’s principal carer but has Hodgkin’s Disease. Sight and Mind also mobilised workmen to undertake necessary essential works in the house and pushed for deliveries of food and medicines during the lockdowns. I look forward to the time when we can meet in person so that I can personally thank them.”
