Living with dementia

It's absolutely possible to live well with dementia with the right care, information and support.

If you need help, don't be afraid to ask for it -  from family and friends, professionals like doctors, nurses, and social workers, and organisations like your local council or Alzheimer Scotland.

We've grouped together a range of our information and booklets which can help support living well with dementia.

To talk to someone about dementia, call our 24 Hour Dementia Helpline.
