Where to get help and support if you are caring for someone with dementia

11-Jul-16

It’s only natural to worry about your loved ones who may be living with dementia, but it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. The NHS, voluntary organisations, support groups and online are all great resources that provide advice and support.
