We provide friends and families caring for someone with dementia with information, support and skills to best care for them.
Support & Information
For carers on a one-to-one basis
- Information about dementia, tailored for your needs, to assist you in your caring role

- Carers groups and mutual support
- Help with planning for the future
- Help with understanding and accessing all the support you are legally entitled to as a carer.
A series of workshops are available, offering information about dementia with a focus on the individual experience of the person with dementia. This is a chance to meet and share experiences with other dementia carers in similar situations.
Carers will learn about:
- Understanding dementia – including benefits and support.
- The experience of dementia and the impact on the person.
- Meeting the emotional needs of the person with dementia.
Personalised coaching in the home, focusing on your own experiences, challenges and needs as a carer of a person with dementia.
