the click guide to dementia

Dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face today. Last year there were 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and, according to the Alzheimer’s Society, there will be more than one million people living with dementia by 2025. In response to these demographics there is a growing range of resources to improve the quality of life for the person with dementia, their family, carers and friends through communication, entertainment and stimulation.

The click guide to dementia has been developed to help people living with dementia, their family, carers and professionals working in this area to make use of the fantastic resources which are already available across the whole spectrum of needs today. We believe it is important to bring all of this information together in a single place. The guide lists more than a hundred of these resources.
