You could make a huge difference to the lives of people living with dementia during the coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic is an incredibly worrying time for all of us – but it’s having an even greater impact on people affected by dementia.

Under Government advice, men and women in the UK over 70 – that’s around 700,000 people with dementia – will be asked to stay at home for an extensive period of time.

People will be completely cut off from their families, their communities and the networks they rely on. People who live alone may be cut off from social contact completely.

Nobody with dementia should be left feeling alone at a time like this.

That’s why we are working hard to continue some of our services, such as Singing for the Brain, remotely and safely.

We are also replacing our face-to-face services with telephone support via our Dementia Connect support line, increasing this to ensure we support people’s wellbeing through isolation.

We need your help

We can’t keep our phone lines open or manage the increase in demand for our services without urgent financial support. Please donate today to support our appeal. With your help, we can show people living with dementia that they aren’t alone.
