Who can help me if I am worried?

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.

Alzheimer Society - Dementia Connect

If you need dementia support, they're here for you. We know dementia affects everyone differently.  So whether you, a loved one, a friend or neighbour is affected by dementia, they're here to support you. 

Rapid Access Team 

The rapid access service team acts as a single point of access for all referrals to older peoples services 365 days a year.

Age UK

Their team are trained to identify the information that will best answer your questions. This might be by sending you our advice guides or helping you to find local services run by Age UK in your area. If they can’t help, they will direct you to the best place to go for further support and advice.
