Help & Advice

The Worthing Dementia Action Alliance has assembled a collection of resources, information and advice to support people living with dementia, their carers, friends and family.

About dementia and what to look for

Facts about dementia and how it affects everyone differently. Information regarding the symptoms of dementia and how it is caused by physical changes to the brain and links which will direct you to specialist organisations such as the Alzheimer’s Society and Dementia UK.


Diagnosis and what’s next?

Under ‘What’s Next’ we explain what happens when you go to see your doctor and what follows after the diagnosis.


National and local helplines

We have included a section on National and Local Helplines which is useful for those experiencing dementia and also for their carers and families.


Where to find more information

There always seems to be more questions than answers. We have put together a list of relevant links to over 60 organisations that provide information, support, services, advice and help to those who have recently been diagnosed with dementia, their carers and families and for professionals who work locally.


We have a long tradition of supporting people living with dementia and their carers.
