If you suffer from Dementia or Alzheimer's disease or care for someone who does there is a range of support available to you.
Talk to your GP or family doctor about symptoms, diagnosis and the progress of dementia.
We may be able to offer support with personal care, meals and other social care support.
Our Just Checking service can help monitor how well a person with dementia is managing at home.
If you are unable to carry on living at home we might be able to help you find somewhere else to live.
