Help them

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Services (ADSS) is supporting more people in our community affected by dementia than ever before! 

ADSS are Kent’s largest charity dedicated to people with dementia, with a history deeply rooted in Gravesham and surrounding areas we are proudly providing local and tailored support to help people overcome the devastating impact the disease can have.

Being local means that ADSS truly understands the needs of the people across north west Kent and beyond and they use their person-centred experience to ensure people affected by dementia can live the life they want.  Demand for ADSS services has never been higher nor  the needs of the people they support greater.

We understand that individuals with dementia require specialized care, which is why we work tirelessly to provide them with the support they need. We have been able to reach individuals who have gone without support for far too long, and our new contracts have enabled us to help even more people.

For those living with dementia, COVID-19 had a profound impact and continues to do so. The loneliness and isolation led to a decline in their cognitive abilities and mobility. Many individuals lost confidence in leaving their homes, and long waiting lists at memory clinics have only added to the challenges they face.

Despite the many obstacles we face, ADSS remains committed to providing people affected by dementia in our community with the support they need to live fulfilling lives. We are proud to be making a real difference in the lives of those living with dementia and their families. 

Broadening our services comes at a huge cost, and as necessary as the funding for our new contracts is, it was never intended to meet the full cost of care or provide any assistance in delivering the fun and engaging social activities that our service users have come to depend on and find extremely rewarding. However, with your help, we can continue to expand our services and provide vital support to those who need it most.  The Rotary Club of Gravesham with Ebbsfleet Trust Fund Charity No. 1195646.
