One in two people are affected by dementia in their lifetime – either directly or by caring for a loved one. It’s an umbrella term covering the loss of memory and other cognitive functions that affect day to day life. That includes Alzheimer’s disease, which is a progressive condition that impacts memory and thinking skills.

Caring for an elderly loved one with dementia can be an emotionally challenging journey. Providing them with the utmost love and support during their golden years is extremely important. As caregivers, witnessing these changes can feel overwhelming, and finding effective ways to respond becomes crucial. However, with the right resources and knowledge, you can gain the tools you need to support them.

In our dementia information section, we provide useful insights and practical advice for caregivers as well as those living with dementia. From understanding the different stages of Alzheimer’s disease to learning how to effectively communicate, our aim is to empower you to make informed decisions and create a truly nurturing environment for your loved one.

Learn more about the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease to catch it early, discover the different treatments and lifestyle changes to slow its progression, or get dementia care information to provide support without sacrificing independence.
