What is Dementia Together?

Dementia Together provides practical information and support for people who are curious, concerned or living with dementia, their carers and healthcare professionals in Suffolk and Waveney.

It supports each person as an individual and aims to enable and empower people affected by memory worries or dementia to make their own choices, feel in control of their lives and live well with dementia.

The service offers a single point of contact for dementia-related information and support, so that you only have to tell your story once, no matter what stage of the illness you’re at when you need help or information.

Dementia Together will listen to you, answer your questions and provide you with information tailored to your needs, either on the telephone or through a home visit. Depending on your needs, a Helpline Operator or Dementia Navigator can also tell you about local services and sources of help, such as support groups, or refer you to an organisation that can help you.

Who can use Dementia Together?

Dementia Together is available to anyone living in Suffolk and Waveney. It provides support for people who are:

  • With or without a formal diagnosis of dementia
  • At any stage of the illness
  • Caring for or supporting someone with dementia
  • Worried about symptoms, either for themselves or someone else.

Whatever stage you’re at with dementia, Dementia Together can support your needs, offer advice, or just be a listening ear.
