Local Age UK and Age Concern contributions to quality outcomes for people living with dementia and their carers.
The aim of this guide is to show just some of the ways that local Age UKs and Age Concerns are making a difference to the lives of people living with dementia and their carers. Several of the services here show how people with dementia and carers are being supported to help themselves and each other. In particular, we focus on a wide range of community personal support services offering flexibility, support and enjoyment for older people living with dementia and their carers.
