Holidays and travelling

4. Financial assistance

If you have dementia or, are caring for someone with dementia, and you are having difficulty finding the money for a much-needed holiday, a charity may be able to help.

Tourism for All publishes a guide to what help is available to meet the cost of a holiday or respite care. It gives details of the different charities that may be able to help. There is a charge for these guides if you are not a member of Tourism for All (see 'Other useful organisations').

If you would like to enquire about funding for respite care, contact your local authority social services department.
