COMMUNITYOur service is available to everyone who needs us in the local Spelthorne and surrounding communities.
we are focused on improving our diversity and inclusion to make sure that everyone feels welcome and safe.
For people living with dementia and their families, we are at the center of the community. We're an essential service that protects health and wellbeing and enables people living with dementia, their families and friends continue to thrive in their local communities
FAMILY AND CARER SUPPORT To enable family and carers to care for their loved ones living with dementia it is essential that they look after their own health and wellbeing.
CAMEO is also focused on helping family and carers and provide:
Respite We care for people living with dementia for 6 hours a day. This enables carers and families to leave their loved ones in safe hands with peace of mind that their needs can be supported whilst they have a well deserved break. This gives carers time to themselves so that they can rest, get jobs done or spend time doing activites and hobbies that they enjoy. All the time knowing that their loved ones are being well looked after and enjoying themselves.
Community Support We run the ‘Care Café’ each month at a local venue, for families and carers of people living with dementia. This offers a welcoming and friendly environment for family and carers to meet and share experiences in a real supportive community of people who understand what each other are going through.
Advice and support Our practice and training ensure that we can guide caregivers to a range of resources and advice that can support them. We provide support and advice to family and carers both on an individual basis and at the Care Café. We have visitors at the Care Café offering advice and support as well as signposting to other services and benefits.
Hayley is a established singer who believes that music is a powerful tool. Even for residents with severe dementia, when they can no longer remember present day events, it is a pleasure to see them singing along, word for word, to songs from over 50 years ago!! Hayley provides a fun atmosphere and perform songs that the more able residents, with a little assistance, can have a little dance too, as well as performing the good old fashioned sing-a-long songs to get everyone joining in! Hayley performs songs from the 50's to present day.
