Dementia Services Alliance

Approach Dementia Support and Dougie Mac formed a strategic alliance in 2018, to ensure that local people affected by dementia are able to access the right support at the right time and live their life in the way that they choose.

Our strategic alliance vision is… to work together to integrate quality dementia services across our heartland of Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire.

Our strategic alliance mission is… to respond effectively to the growing need for cohesive dementia support across our heartland by collaborating as two organisations with a shared ethos of compassion for the most vulnerable in our community.

Our Dementia Centre, based at the Dougie Mac, offers 1-2-1 and Group sessional work facilitated by both organisations.
