Caring for someone living with dementia is one of the most demanding jobs there is. Alzheimer's Support provides practical and emotional support to husbands, wives, partners, sons and daughters at every stage of their caring experience and also supports friends and neighbours who find themselves in a caring role.
As well as services that give carers a break, such as day clubs and support at home, we run informal support groups in different locations and structured training courses twice a year. We also offer regular training courses by Zoom for carers who find that an easier way to connect.
Find the help you need to cope with ongoing practical, financial and emotional changes as the caring role develops.
