Who supports me through diagnosis?

Alzheimer’s Society

They're a vital source of support and a powerful force for change for everyone affected by dementia.

Alzheimer’s Society is here for everyone affected by dementia.

NHS - Dementia Guide 

If you or someone you know is worried about becoming increasingly forgetful, particularly if they're older than 65, you should talk to a GP about the possibility of dementia.

Memory Services 

The Wakefield memory service provides specialist assessment, diagnosis and treatment for people with memory problems.

Assessments usually take place in an individual’s home, with diagnosis and follow up visits being held in a clinic setting. Treatment is usually the prescription of an anti-dementia medication that helps to treat Alzheimer’s.

Carers Wakefield 

Carers Wakefield & District are a voluntary organisation providing advice, information and support to unpaid carers across the whole of Wakefield district
