The people who most often contact us are families caring for someone with dementia, whether that be Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, or another type of dementia. But the Helpline is also available to people with a diagnosis of dementia, those worried about their memory or the memory of a loved one, and professionals working in dementia care. We’re here for anyone who needs one-to-one support.
