How we can help: Getting information about dementia if you’re partially sighted

We want anyone to be able to make use of our information, including partially sighted people.

‘I’m partially sighted and I care for my stepfather, who has dementia with Lewy bodies. The dementia information I’ve got from his doctor has felt really patchy.’ 

Whether you’re diagnosed with dementia or supporting someone who is, it’s vital to get information and advice that is reliable and useful. 

Alzheimer’s Society helps people in many different ways (see opposite), including through our publications and online information. 

We do everything we can to make sure our information is accurate and up to date, and people affected by dementia help us to make it clear and relevant. 

Of course, we want anyone to be able to make use of our information, including partially sighted people – get in touch to see how we can help you.

Devices and tools 

Our website is designed so that people with different needs can use it easily. 

You can change your device’s settings to make text larger, magnify the screen, change colours and fonts, make a mouse pointer easier to see, or use a screenreader to read what’s on the screen out to you. 

For details about how to do these things, see My Computer My Way

Magnifiers and other tools can make it easier to read printed publications. For ideas and products from the RNIB shop
