New Support Service : Dementia Connect

Dementia Connect is Alzheimer’s Society’s new personalised support and advice service. It’s for people with dementia, their carers, families and friends. The service is free, easy to access by phone or online, and puts you in touch with Alzheimer’s Society’s dementia advisers. They will listen, help with all your dementia-related questions, and connect you to the support you need. This includes help in your area, as well as phone and online advice and information. Alzheimer’s Society will keep in touch with you, so you always have the support you they need, only ever needing to tell your story once.

Talking Point Logo

Dementia Talking Point is our online community where anyone affected by dementia can ask questions, get information and share practical tips with people who understand.

People can connect with someone who is going through a similar experience, receive valuable support, and feel less isolated.

It’s free, available 24 hours a day and accessible via smartphone, tablet or computer.

You can remain anonymous when using Dementia Talking Point, to discuss sensitive issues about dementia and seek support more privately.
