RohanWho are we?

Know Dementia, a local charity, is run by volunteers comprising family carers and qualified professionals who live and work with people with a dementia.

Why do we do this?

We know, as family carers, what it feels like when it is confirmed that someone has a dementia in the family.

We believe that you want to know:

•  What help is available.

•  How it may affect your finances now and in the future.

•  How you cope as things progress.

•  How you live with the condition.

•  Who you can talk to.

 Our Purpose is to provide you with the advice and support you need, having received a diagnosis of a dementia.
