Well I am pleased to see that Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s and those with other neurological illnesses will at last receive public support.
“Dementia is now one of the most significant health challenges facing our society.
Carers need better support as well

Ex-family dementia carer.
I totally agree. Support for carers seems to be mostly restricted to self help. The Dementia Advisor project is not perfect and not a solution to all problems. However, the task of finding out information and providing support to those with dementia usually falls primarily to carers. In some small way, this project goes some way to alleviating the stresses put on carers at the initial diagnosis stage and that can only be good.

Best wishes.
Unfortunately only available in one small part of the country !

Information and support for Carers of dementia sufferers can also be got from Admiral Nurses - more information here: http://www.dementiauk.org/what-we-do/admiral-nurses/

Admiral Nurses were also highighted by John Suchet last year after his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/elder ... -died.html
