Watch what people with dementia, family carers, volunteers and staff have to say
If you are funding care yourself, prices for whole day, regular attendance at the centres usually start from £41.78 per day.* A free trial is available for people to see if the centre meets their needs.
Family carers can bring the person they care for to a MindCare Centre for up to three hours, either on a regular basis or as and when needed. This gives carers a break to pursue interests or catch up with other responsibilities.
Prices for Drop-In sessions start from £9.42 per hour.** All prices are correct as at July 2017 and may be subject to change. MindCare Dementia Support is part of local charity, Bromley & Lewisham Mind. Any surplus money is reinvested into the MindCare Dementia Support service for the benefit of local people with dementia and their carers.
