Useful dementia resources for more information and support

With a support network in the millions spanning the globe, there are many organisations with useful resources which can help you or your loved one live well with dementia.

National dementia resources, services and charities:

The NHS – information and advice for people with dementia and their friends and families

The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity which has established a nationwide network of ‘Dementia Friends’. ‘Dementia Friends’ are members of the public who have pledged their support to take action in their local communities to help those living with dementia.

Although the Alzheimer’s Association is based in America, their website has a wealth of useful information and resources.

Age UK not only has a useful guide providing information and advice about dementia, but their involvement in communities across the UK means their support is available nationwide.

For information about the latest research and advances from medical science and to find out how you can help, visit Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Being a condition of the brain, dementia has close links to mental health. The Mental Health Foundation and Mind share a mission to help people thrive through understanding, protecting and sustaining their mental health, which is equally as important for those living with dementia and their loved ones.

Dementia Adventure is a charity which enables people living with dementia to explore new adventures and holidays which are specially designed for those living with dementia.
