Living Well With Dementia

People with dementia can live independent lives. There are many ways they can be supported to remain at home. Through the Darlington Dementia Action Alliance [external link], local shops, banks and other businesses are working together to make Darlington a Dementia Friendly Community [external link]

Adult Social Care also supports people with an assessed eligible social care need via a range of services. You can find out more information about the assessment process. If you have been assessed as being eligible for social care funded support, a Financial Assessment will need to be carried out to see if you can get help towards the cost of your support. You can find out more information on the financial assessment

Services and support are available for people with dementia. The range is quite varied and support can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual. In addition, the Alzheimer's Society offer a range of daily living aids which are particularly useful for people with dementia.
