Many people who are diagnosed with a dementia, or who are dealing with the diagnosis of a loved one, can feel as though they are alone. Post-diagnostic support is very important but is sadly lacking, or is poorly signposted in many cases.
The Dementia Hubs aim to fill this gap, providing practical information and support for people living with, or caring for, dementia. The Dementia Hubs are also for those who are worried about their memory.
The Dementia Hubs serve as a ‘one-stop shop’, offering clear and sensible information about recognising symptoms, how to get involved in research, where to access help, how to manage financially, staying at home, treatment options, being a carer, and staying positive. The Dementia Hubs help those with dementia and their families to make sure that they can stay well and happy as long as possible.
There are a number of Dementia Information Hubs situated across the North West, and these are listed below. Please see the links provided for more information such as locations, dates and times.
