The Alzheimer's Society is the leading care and research charity for people with dementia and those that care for them. It is a national membership organisation and works through nearly 300 branches and support groups. The Society has expertise in information and education for carers and professionals. It provides helplines and support for carers, runs quality day and home care services through its Care Consortium, funds medical and scientific research and gives financial help to families in need. It campaigns for improved health and social services and greater public understanding of all aspects of dementia.
In addition, the Society provides a comprehensive set of Information and Advice Sheets (also available from their website) which can be obtained free of charge upon membership. Membership is open to everyone and there is no fixed subscription just please give as generously as you can (for carers and people with dementia who are unable to contribute financially, membership is free). An excellent quarterly newsletter is also distributed to all members, with a very useful 'Questions & Answers' page written for carers.
