In the UK, about 225,000 people develop dementia each year, which means one person gets it every three minutes. Dementia is a brain condition, and its effects can be different for each person. Everyone’s experience with dementia is unique.

It’s important not to wait too long to seek help. Getting a diagnosis is crucial to accessing and receiving the right services. Knowledge about dementia can help you deal with it, accept the situation, and plan for the future. You can use the internet and social media to find information and connect with others who can provide support but it’s often more valuable to attend a local Dementia Café or support group.

It provides practical advice for dealing with daily challenges, managing changing relationships, and finding care services in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire for people with dementia.

Whether you’re just starting to notice signs of dementia or seeking a diagnosis, this guide can help you understand and navigate the process.
