Flexible dementia support you can trust

Often people think that following a dementia diagnosis the future will mean residential care and separation from family. But with The Avalon Group you can find support to fit your needs, enabling you to stay in your home for as long as possible, surrounded by those you love.

We have over 20 years’ experience delivering person centred, bespoke support in communities across the north of England.

We can offer you a variety of options to best benefit you, and to help your individual needs to live well with dementia.

First steps

After you get in touch with us, one of our dementia specialists will arrange an initial meeting at a time and place to suit you, to discuss your needs and support.

We ensure your dignity, safety and peace of mind are prioritised by guiding you through the necessary steps at your own pace.

We then agree a flexible package of support with you, which will be regularly reviewed.

Support for daily life

Our trained, specialist staff can offer support with anything you might require, from 30 minutes per week up to 24 hours per day. For example:

  • Grocery shopping
  • Attending appointments
  • Participating in hobbies
  • Personal care e.g. assistance with bathing, dressing, eating, medication etc.
  • Home maintenance/support e.g. meal preparation, gardening, cleaning, washing and ironing
  • Simple ways to modify your home so that you retain independence and feel safe



We can also offer short breaks and respite through our award winning Shared Lives service. In Shared Lives you are offered a break in the home of a family of trained carers, with whom you are carefully matched based on your interests and lifestyle, as well as your individual needs.

Why choose Avalon?

We know that considering different care options can be a difficult and sensitive issue. With us, you can have total reassurance in the quality of care and support provided.

Every person accessing our dementia service is supported by trained support staff who undergo rigorous recruitment and selection procedures, checks and a comprehensive training programme.

We will carefully match your interests and needs with a member of our team, ensuring you are supported by people well known to you. You can be reassured that there is always someone to hand when you need us, with our dedicated on-call service operating 24/7.

How much will it cost?

Our personalised packages are tailored to your specific needs. Therefore we advise you to speak to our team to find out how much your support will cost.

You may be eligible for financial support through Local Authority funding or you can access the service privately. Our Care Team will discuss these options with you.
