Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We are here to support anyone with memory issues from the time they become worried about their memory, through obtaining a diagnosis and then living with their condition. We help people to find ways to cope with memory issues we provide information, support and guidance  and a listening ear to those who need it.

Direct support for people worried about their memory or affected by dementia:

  • Our Dementia Support team offer practical guidance to help you understand the condition, cope with day-to-day challenges and prepare for the future.
  • Our pre-assessment support team can provide information and help to anyone either worried about their memory or waiting for a diagnosis.
  • Our Intense Support Team will provide support to carers struggling to cope or in crisis
  • We provide a range of virtual groups and courses for both people with Dementia and carers.
