Coronavirus support for people affected by dementia

If you are living with dementia or supporting somebody with dementia, coronavirus might make you feel anxious, scared or lonely. But you are not alone – help and information is available.

People with dementia are more likely to catch coronavirus and are at greater risk of complications. Some of the symptoms of long Covid are similar to symptoms of dementia.

Alzheimer’s Society can answer queries about all aspects of dementia, and offer advice and support for the associated challenges it can bring.
