About the service

Hertswise is a service for people living with dementia (with or without a diagnosis), low level memory loss or mild cognitive impairment and their family, friends and carers. It is provided by a partnership of 9 community and voluntary organisations. Hertswise aims to ensure that people of all ages, living in Hertfordshire can access information and advice, activities and support.  We offer the following services to support service users to make positive changes to their physical and emotional wellbeing.

Community Network Hubs

2 hour, weekly run groups in 10 localities/districts across Hertfordshire – facilitated by the Locality Worker. In these groups we use the 5 Ways to Wellbeing model to promote positive health and wellbeing.  Activities are based on what clients want to do – making the session person-centred.

10 Week One 2 One Support 

This is facilitated by the Locality Worker and delivered to service users who may be isolated or lack confidence in attending one of our groups. Locality workers will plan activities based on the service users likes and interests with the aim of service users becoming confident enough to join Community Network Plus groups.

Carers Support

We have a carer support worker as part of the project who will move around all the groups that are facilitated as part of Hertswise and speak with the carers and try and fulfil their unmet needs, as well as running carers hubs of their own – ensuring that they are signposted for further support if the carers need this.

Community Information Network (CIN) 

Advisors offer support and advice on benefits, Lasting Powers of Attorney, respite care and may other things and signpost clients/carers on to the right support services.  The CIN workers can visit clients and carers in their homes to support them with completing benefit forms etc.
