Alzheimer's & dementia care

Dementia is not a single illness but a term for various symptoms of several conditions that can affect the brain.  It can happen to anyone and there is currently no cure, but some treatments may slow the progression of the disease. Below you will find links to various sources of information which we hope you will find useful.  We have also included details of various organisations who can provide help and support locally for those who have dementia, or their carers, friends and relatives.  For a complete list of appropriate services and information pages contained on this website, please return to the home page and perform a search for the content you need.
