Dementia Together is the new service which will provide practical information for those curious or concerned about Dementia, along with support for people living with Dementia, their carers and healthcare professionals in Suffolk. This replaced the existing post-diagnostic Dementia support offer for people in east and west Suffolk, which ceased on 31 March, as well as the Suffolk SAID pilot project run by Sue Ryder.

Based in Ipswich, The Chantry provides care and support to adults living with complex neurological conditions.
The focus is on the needs of those being supported – their needs, wishes and wants are at the heart of everything. Long-term care as well as respite for a few days, weeks or longer is provided.
In addition to residential care, an extensive programme of community and day services is available each weekday. These include a 4-day week dementia day service, 4-day week neurological day service, synergy café for people with dementia and their carers and a day service for people living with multiple sclerosis.
In addition to the services at The Chantry, there is also a supported living unit for complex neurological conditions in Suffolk, where individuals are supported to live independently, providing support to them with the care and support they need.
