Alzheimer's Society Dementia Support Forum

The Alzheimer's Society Dementia Support Forum is a helpful online community where anyone who is affected by dementia can receive valuable support. It's free, open day or night, and can be accessed online.

 

On our Dementia Support Forum you can:

  • Ask for advice
  • Read other people's stories
  • Offload your concerns about dementia
  • Share helpful information

 

How is Dementia Support Forum run?
Dementia Support Forum is run by a small team of staff and supported by our brilliant volunteers. Our volunteers all have personal experience of caring for people with dementia. They help to welcome new members, point people toward useful resources and provide on-going support for the service.

As the community isn't manned by professional advisers, it cannot provide medical or legal advice. Help is instead provided through shared experience and peer support.

 

What others have said:

"I really appreciated the help and support I get from people I've never met. This helped me to cope with my situation, deal with my feelings, frustrations, worries and fears. I felt as though there was always someone I could turn to, and no matter when I posted, I always received a reply from someone within hours.

'When you are dealing with someone with dementia, this is so important."
