Common questions after dementia diagnosis
Being diagnosed with dementia doesn't necessarily mean you have to stop driving. But there are some things you need to do to if you want to continue driving and be safe on the road.
No matter what kind of dementia you have, Alzheimer's Society has a range of support services to suit you. Whether it's over the phone, face to face, or through community groups, we're here for you.
If you or someone you know has dementia, you may be eligible for some benefits. Financial support could be available if dementia affects your ability to work, or if you have extra costs because of it.
Many people living with dementia continue working after their diagnosis. If you want to stay in work, there are some things you need to know about your rights, and telling your employer about your diagnosis.
There is no cure for dementia yet. Dementia is progressive, which means symptoms will get worse over time.
But dementia affects everyone differently. With the right support and treatment, a person with dementia can live well for as long as possible.
Alzheimer's Society has funded dementia research for over 30 years and has played a key role in some of the biggest breakthroughs.
We want to see improvements for people living with dementia now — whether it's through a quicker more accurate diagnosis, improvement in care and support or in the development of new treatments.
