About dementia and what to look for
Facts about dementia and how it affects everyone differently. Information regarding the symptoms of dementia and how it is caused by physical changes to the brain and links which will direct you to specialist organisations such as the Alzheimer’s Society and Dementia UK.
Under ‘What’s Next’ we explain what happens when you go to see your doctor and what follows after the diagnosis.
We have included a section on National and Local Helplines which is useful for those experiencing dementia and also for their carers and families.
Where to find more information
There always seems to be more questions than answers. We have put together a list of relevant links to over 60 organisations that provide information, support, services, advice and help to those who have recently been diagnosed with dementia, their carers and families and for professionals who work locally.
