Dementia can affect all aspects of a person's life. It has an impact on the person and their family. If you’ve been diagnosed with dementia, or you're caring for someone with the condition, remember that advice and support is available to help you live well.

There are many different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia and vascular dementia.

When diagnosed early, people can continue to live active and fulfilling lives, often for years. Each of these illnesses lead in time, to symptoms becoming more severe and an ongoing decline of the brain and its abilities.

A detailed assessment helps us to determine the cause of dementia symptoms and the right path to care and support for you or someone you provide care for, with the aim of maintaining independence for as long as possible.

If you live in the boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham or Hounslow, your local dementia service is the Cognitive Impairment and Dementia Service (CIDS).
