Support for people with dementia and their carers
This page contains information on
While the majority of the care provided for people with dementia comes from informal carers, people with dementia are also significant users of formal care services. Formal care is provided by care workers, nursing staff or other health and social care professionals. This can constitute personal care, for example helping the person with everyday tasks such as getting washed or dressed, or can consist of medical or nursing care. The exact nature of formal care and who is responsible for providing it will depend on the care settings and the individual's specific needs. The following organisations provide care and support for people with dementia and their carers in Wiltshire.
