Support for carers

Looking after someone with dementia can be very rewarding, but it always requires a lot of work, energy and sacrifice in order to provide the best possible support. When a loved one is your number one priority, it's very easy to forget about your own physical and mental wellbeing. 

For people that are struggling, here are some organisations that can provide you with advice and support:

The Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Connect Support Line


The Dementia UK helpline
