Alzheimer's Society Lambeth - Side by Side

Alzheimer's Society Lambeth - Side by Side logo


Side by Side is a free service provided by Alzheimer's Society to help people with dementia stay active and involved in their local community.

With the support of the same local volunteer each session, you can get out and about to keep doing the things you love or try something new.

From gardening to golf, to simply have a good old chat - what you both do together is completely up to you. You could even teach your volunteer something new.

How will I be paired with the right volunteer?

Once you have signed up for the service, we will arrange a convenient time to chat to you and find out about the things you enjoy. We'll tell you about the volunteers that are available in your area so that you can pick who you'd like to be paired with.
From there, you can discuss and agree with your volunteer how often you'd like to meet up going forward.

Subject Definitions

Befriending services offer supportive, reliable relationships through volunteer befrienders to people who would otherwise be socially isolated.
For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
