Information and advice on dementia
If someone receives a dementia diagnosis, they and their family will have questions, including about what support they will receive.
We have created guides to help answer some of these questions and to give you key information on issues surrounding a dementia diagnosis.
These publications complement our core publications which provide information and advice about care, benefits, housing and legal issues such as Power of Attorney
The Age Scotland free national helpline, provides information, friendship and advice to older people, their families and carers. People with dementia, and those helping to care for someone who has dementia, can get one-to-one advice on topics including Power of Attorney and welfare benefits. Call our team on the number below.
