Oakland Community Link Service


The Oakland Community Link Service provides support to people over 65 years old or have dementia, to access services in their local community.

A trained and experienced support team can offer short term support to older people and people with dementia, who live independently in the community. 

Examples of the type of support are:

accessing community facilities or activities
independent travel
meeting new friends
building confidence
increasing well-being

The short term service is free of charge.   However there may be costs if a person requires ongoing support to use some other services or facilities.

Finding out more is easy.   To arrange a visit and informal chat, phone 435900 or e-mail oakland.centre@dundeecity.gov.uk.
