Dementia Connect, from Alzheimer’s Society, is a personalised support service for anyone in Essex with dementia, their carers, families and friends.
Funded by Essex County Council, the service connects people to a whole range of dementia support, by phone, online and face to face.
Alzheimer’s Society understands that dementia affects everyone differently. So whether you, a loved one, a friend or neighbour needs dementia support, we’re here for you.
The charity’s highly-trained dementia advisers and dementia support workers can help people come to terms with their diagnosis and navigate the complicated maze of health and social care services.
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Connect online support is available round the clock on the website. Answer a few simple questions about yourself, or someone you know, to get personalised, relevant information and advice. From guides on dementia to advice on making your home dementia friendly, get the information about the things that matter to you.
Online support also includes Talking Point, Alzheimer’s Society’s online community, where you can connect with others in a similar situation and the Dementia Directory where you can search for local services.
Face to face support
Where possible, dementia support workers in Essex can meet you to offer further support, advice and information face to face. They will also connect you to other face to face services in your area, including local support groups.
