Dementia affects everyone differently. But having the right support really can make life easier. Dementia connect is a specialist, personalised service provided by the Alzheimer’s Society who are the UKs leading dementia charity.

Referrals can come from GPs, self-referrals and other professionals including third sector organisations.

Once a patient has been referred to the Dementia Connect service or have decided to self- refer then one of their expert advisors will get in touch.

Dementia Connect cuts through the confusion about where to go for help and takes away the stress of trying to find out what services and support are available in the local area and what support will be the most appropriate.

They will talk to the patient and their family or carer about the things that matter most. They will then be able to provide connections to the right support that can help maintain independence, health and enjoyment of life.

Through Dementia Connect the Alzheimer’s Society are creating a more dementia friendly society so that everyone with the condition can live without fear and prejudice
