About

Side by Side Airedale, Craven and Wharfedale is an Alzheimer's Society service that focuses on the individual needs and personalities of people living with dementia. Side by Side is available for anyone with a diagnosis of dementia. We help you find a volunteer to help you carry on doing the things that you love This can be anything from going to their library or walking in a local park to joining a cycle club or teaching a swimming class together.  Side by Side volunteers and people living with dementia are carefully matched and they can then support each other to do the things that they enjoy. Side by Side is not able to replace respite care or a transport service and we are not able to offer any personal care or mobility support. Volunteers are asked to volunteer on a regular basis. We want to know the things you enjoy doing so that we can find you a partner who loves those things too. So whether you are a keen potholing expert or a fantastic lace maker, give us a call to see what opportunities there are with Side by Side for you. Volunteer travel expenses are paid and full training and an induction are provided. If you would like to be involved either as a volunteer or as a person living with dementia please contact Side by Side on 01274 586008 on 07889603919 or email sidebyside@alzheimers.org.uk
