Helpsheets about dementia

Helpsheets are short and simplified summaries of our most popular information. Each helpsheet covers a single topic. These are easy to print at home.

What are helpsheets?

Helpsheets are printable, simple versions of our most popular information on dementia. They are one single page long.

I'd like to know more about a topic

If you'd like to know more about a topic, each helpsheet mentions another factsheet or booklet, and its code. These have more detail and information in them. Make a note of the title and code. You can find them on our full list of publications

Is there a simpler version available?

Easy Read versions are for people with learning disabilities and are easier to understand than a helpsheet.

Easy Read uses simple sentences and photos to make the topic of dementia as easy to understand as possible. They were co-produced with the Belfast Dementia Champions with learning disabilities group.

Where does this information come from?

We talk with and listen to people affected by dementia to find out what information they need and find helpful. These helpsheets have been written, checked and reviewed in our Publishing and Knowledge Services teams. People affected by dementia have also reviewed them and given us valuable feedback.

If you'd like to give feedback on any of the helpsheets, please email the team at [email protected]
