Care and support - Community support and services - Education and social support services

Everyone's experience will be different when receiving a diagnosis of dementia. Some people may want to learn as much as they can about dementia right away, whereas others will want to take the learning slower. When you are ready to receive support, either educational or social, there are many services in the community that will be there for you. This is not something that you can do alone. Reach out to others who can help.
