There is lots of help and support available to help those living with dementia stay in their own home and carry on living their life.
Know someone who’s becoming forgetful?
Memory problems can be caused by a number of health problems, not just dementia.
If you're worried, it's best to get the person you know to go see their local GP who will be able to reassure them or give them the diagnosis they need.
If you have a diagnosis of dementia you will be given information about what will happen next. This booklet explains more.
Worried they might go missing? Fill in this form so all the information is ready to help Hertfordshire Police if the person goes missing. You don’t have to answer every question if you don’t want to.
Get help from us
We can provide support at home by helping with things like personal care, medication and preparing meals. There are also a range of monitors and alarms that could help with monitoring things like the bath overflowing, if there is a fire or even if someone leaves the house at unusual times.
We can have a chat with you about your needs and your day-to-day life. We can then agree what help and support would be best for you.
We call this an assessment.
Are you caring for someone and need support yourself?
