The following services are available to support people through the coronavirus pandemic.

• Online support specifically for people affected by dementia, including websites where the service offer is clear, and the content does not cover information already provided on Alzheimer’s Society’s websites
• Courses for people affected by dementia where the course relates to their condition or caring role and is not a one-off event

• Online or telephone services relating to comorbidities that are specific to dementia and the other comorbidities (for example, a service that is specific to dementia and Parkinson’s) or a service specifically catering for people with disabilities
