Home Spirit Home Spirit Circle of Support

Most of us have many people in our lives who all play a role in ‘our’ society.

It is not always obvious what people mean to each other, so the creation of a Circle of Support can help the person living with dementia gather together a record of the people that they love, the people that they care about, the people who they see a lot, the people they wish they could see more, the people who help them live their lives, the people who are vital to their wellbeing.

This tool is a way to share this information in the first instance, to know who is important to the person and support the person to stay in contact – It may be necessary to use technology, such as a mobile phone for ‘face time’ and skype on a computer. As the dementia progresses, this tool can support memory to the person and help them see ‘their community’ of people, using pictures.
