A frequently updated list of resources for people coping with dementia and long-term illness – includes books, articles, websites and organisations.
Contented Dementia Trust
The Contented Dementia Trust helps those who have already been diagnosed with some form of dementia, and their carers.
In their own words: “When dementia is diagnosed, we see it as a disability which can be managed with remarkable success, rather than an ultimately hopeless medical condition. We provide a range of courses, services, advice and information for families, friends and health & social care professionals”.
In their own words: “At Alzheimer’s Society, we believe passionately that life doesn’t end when dementia begins. We are here for anyone affected by dementia, and we do everything we can to keep people with dementia connected to their lives and the people who matter most.”
Alzheimer Scotland provides a wide range of specialist services for people with dementia and their carers. We offer personalised support services, community activities, information and advice, at every stage of the dementia journey.
Helping Hands – the Home Care Specialists
In their own words: “All our customers are treated individuals with their own personalities, interests and medical care requirements. That’s why the home care we deliver is person-centred and tailored to meet the exact needs of you or your loved one … we have established ourselves as the leading provider of home care across Worcestershire, Warwickshire, East Midlands, Yorkshire and part of the Cotswolds, West Midlands and West Country.”
Wishing Well Charity
Music and rhythm is the last thing human beings forget. At Wishing Well musicians work alongside patients with dementia and severe head injuries.
In their own words: “The essence of good dementia care is human connection, and music lets us do that”.
