Our Dementia Adviser Service provides advice and information and a link for the whole family to specialist support services

A dementia diagnosis can bring many challenges including feelings of loneliness and isolation. Our advisers can help you plan for the future by offering advice on everything from getting support from your GP and social care professionals to respite care and looking after yourself if you're a carer. We also signpost to a range of activities - including our Living Well Day Opportunities - to encourage people living with dementia to stay stimulated, active and well.
