Dementia – where to get help

Whether you think you may have dementia yourself, or you are caring for someone that has dementia, there are places you can get help, both at the beginning of the journey and all the way along as things change and progress.

Remember, if you have seen some signs of possible dementia (in yourself or others), don’t hesitate to ask the doctor for an assessment and diagnosis, which will ensure suitable treatment and access to other services.
