Next week is Dementia Awareness Week, so we wanted to talk about a very important collection of people…

Sussex Support Service aims to create an enjoyable environment where people with dementia and other degenerative neurological disorders and their families:

~ can live as normal a life as possible, for as long as possible

~ are not defined by their condition or have their potential limited by the attitude of others

~ can live well, exercising control and choice over how their needs are met.

So what goes on at Sussex Support Services?  They provide a wonderful centre wiith activities ranging from cooking, arts and crafts, musical activites or just having a chat with lovely helpers and other clients.  Lunch and snacks are provided too.  Trips and outings are organised on a regular basis, so there’s loads going on.

Sussex Support Service’s mission aim is to provide a range of quality, affordable and flexible person-centred care and support in activity centres, enabling individuals to live with dignity and respect in whatever way they choose.

They also aim to influence the wider communities’ attitudes towards people living with dementia’s condition, help them to continue to play an active role in their community and access more mainstream activities.

Sussex Support Services use their funds to work with other providers too and organise a whole host of wonderful activities for those with dementia and other neurological problems.

Apart from having highly trained and knowledgeable staff, they are a professional team of people, acting with sensitivity and compassion.
Sussex Support Services work to the CQC codes of practice, utilising polices and procedures and ensuring that their staff are fully DBS checked, to make sure that their clients are safe at all times.
