Here at Alzheimer's Society we are always working hard to improve the lives of people living with dementia, to raise awareness, and to continue to fund life changing research on all aspects of dementia.
We know that living with dementia can be a hard and lonely experience. Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support through our Admiral Nurse service, working together with families to provide the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia every day.

We recognise the importance of the treasured relationship between people and pets and we recognise that this relationship is, more often than not seriously threatened by infirmity and frailty. We exist to ensure that any problem encountered in the day to day care of a pet can be overcome and all the benefits of owning a pet can be preserved.
