In the summer of 2016, Central Bedfordshire Council ran a competitive tender process for support services for people living with dementia and their carers.
Tibbs Dementia, Carers in Bedfordshire and the Alzheimer's Society are now all working together to commission a range of services to help people living with dementia, and carers, to understand the condition and maintain their wellbeing. The aim is that the organisations commission and deliver support, working together – and with Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire Council as well as the East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) - give people across Bedfordshire affected by dementia a range of joined up services that would meet their needs along all stages of a dementia journey.
The Memory Navigation Service (0300 111 9090) is run by Carers in Bedfordshire from their offices in Bedford.
