Dementia Together

Dementia Together provides practical information and support for people living with dementia and their carers in Suffolk, excluding Waveney.

Dementia is an illness that affects individuals in different ways over time. If you are living with dementia or caring for someone who is, you may have concerns or want to know more about the condition and how to access the different types of support you need.

It offers a single point of contact via a helpline so that people only have to tell their story once, and works together with local community services to provide co-ordinated, responsive support for individuals at every step of the way – whether that’s information about dementia, connecting with others who understand, or planning for the future.

Who delivers Dementia Together?

Dementia Together has been developed with people affected by dementia and their carers. It aims to enable and empower people affected by dementia to make their own choices, feel in control of their lives, and live well with dementia. It also supports health and social care professionals, and business and community leaders seeking advice about dementia-friendly communities.

Dementia Together is co-ordinated by Sue Ryder and delivered in partnership with local organisations in the health and social care and voluntary sectors.

An award-winning service

Dementia Together won the CCG & Local Authority Integrated Commissioning for Carers Award at the prestigious Health Service Journal Awards 2017.
