Are you concerned about someone who is 

confused and forgetful? 

 

Over 16,000 people living in Northern Ireland have some form of dementia.

Over 90% of those people are cared for at home by a relative or friend.

Caring is an emotionally and physically demanding job.

 

Do you need help?

 

Perhaps you, or someone you care for, have been given a diagnosis of dementia.

 

The Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Helpline can offer you confidential, impartial and sensitive support.

 

Our trained Helpline Advisors are skilled in dealing with the many issues that can arise through receiving a diagnosis of dementia and the course of the illness.

 

They can provide you with comprehensive information on a wide variety of topics:

 

Diagnosis and assessment

The disease process

Anti-dementia drugs

Financial and legal issues

Social Security benefits

Health and Social Services

Your rights as a carer

Your rights as a person with dementia

And much, much more

 

They can provide you with information to help you make choices and decisions about your situation and advice to help you cope with managing the illness on a day-to-day basis.

 

Our advisors can also act as advocates for you in representing your rights at meetings, supporting you when making a complaint or helping you access community care.
