Alzheimer’s Society update: Dementia Directory

The Alzheimer’s Society has updated their online support services directory for anyone affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Dementia directory is Alzheimer’s Society’s comprehensive, easy-to-use online support services directory for anyone affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

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

• Live virtual activity groups, such as singing groups, exercise groups specifically for people affected by dementia and mindfulness

• Self-isolation support groups, such as online peer support groups

• Telephone befriending and companionship services

• Home delivery services through established schemes

• Advocacy

• Information and advice (such as telephone helplines)

• Live online information programmes (such as falls prevention schemes and dementia information programmes)

• 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 that support people living with mild cognitive impairment

• 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
