This handbook will support you to handle the responsibilities of caring for somebody with dementia.
Each day is different provides someone starting out in dementia care with an introduction to what they might expect in the first few weeks.
Not everyone will be eligible to have care or support paid for by their local authority. Eligibility is determined through a financial assessment of the person receiving the care or support.
Anyone who cares for a person with dementia is also entitled to an assessment of their own needs as a carer. This page includes information about getting a carer's assessment in Wales and what to expect and what to do in preparation for the assessment.
