Welcome to the UK Dementia Directory

We are here to try to bring together as much information as we can about dementia.

You can find lots of information on some of the many support groups and organisations throughout the UK that help support individuals and families living with dementia.

Support workers and family members that are caring for people with dementia can also buy great products that can help a person with dementia lead a better quality of life through independent living.

And please don’t forget our blog where we try to provide as much information on dementia as we can. We have many videos on living with dementia as well as many contact details of local support groups.

We would love you to contribute to the dementia blog. Just let us know who you are and what service or product you provide and where in the UK you are.
