How we can support you
Our support specialists are here to speak with you. Sometimes people just need a bit of information and at other times people may need a listening ear or emotional support by meeting up with others who feel the same.
We also offer information and advice for practitioners who work with people affected by rare or young onset dementia in a variety of settings. Working together is important to respond to a range of support needs, whether someone has just been diagnosed or whether they have been living with dementia for some time.
