Working together for excellent healthcare in North Norfolk and rural Broadland

Dementia Information Pack

 

Being told that you or a loved one has dementia can be a traumatic and worrying time.

But help and advice is available from a variety of sources.

To help patients and their carers cope with the life-changing impact of dementia, North Norfolk CCG has got together with a number of other organisations to produce a virtual information pack. The aim is to signpost people to the wide range of free help and support available following diagnosis and to provide answers to the most commonly asked questions.

This also forms part of the work that has been taking place for the past three years in North Norfolk and rural Broadland within the Living Well With Dementia (LWWD) programme.

The free information available to dementia patients and their carers includes:

An NHS guide for people newly diagnosed with dementia in North Norfolk or rural Broadland
