THE DEMENTIA CARER'S WORLD

In the Dementia Carer's World we want to aid you in thinking about what a dementia diagnosis will mean for the future. A diagnosis does eventually change life. It often calls for a carer to adapt and change and for new ways of communication and connection with those we know and care for.  It does have an impact on ourselves, friends and families. We hope these themes and sections do give an insight into dementia care and show that the more understanding we have the more we are able to cope with changes as they happen.

A little tip: anything that is underlined or in a circle will lead you to another page or information so be free and click away!  

As you will see, we have a lot of information to add and so we are constantly updating the site. If there isn't a link to further information it will be coming soon. Please use our Contact form if you'd like us to add anything :)
