Dementia Information Service
The Dementia Information Service supports people with Dementia (or memory problems they do not need a formal diagnosis) and their carers, friends and relatives to get relevant information when they need it.
People can discuss their needs over the telephone, face to face or via email. They can be signposted and referred to other relevant services. Information is provided on all aspects of memory problems, be it understanding their diagnosis or the more practical aspects of day to day living with memory problems.
Any agency or individual can refer to the Dementia Information Service.
