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.
Our free training courses help people of all ages who find themselves in a caring role. Understanding more about dementia and the practical help that is available can make all the difference.Read more
