The Dementia Guide

The Dementia Guide is an important resource for any person impacted by any form of dementia, of any age. The Dementia Guide can help anyone learn about dementia and the treatments, support and services available.

The Dementia Guide may also be useful to the friends, families and carers of people living with dementia, as it contains information about the impact dementia may have on a person, the treatment, support and services they may need, as well as for anyone taking on a caring role.
