There are several ways to get support for people with memory problems or dementia as well as talking to the doctor. These include Memory Support Workers and the Alzheimer’s Society which provides information and support for people experiencing memory problems or dementia and their family, friends and carers. There also an increasing number of regular memory cafes and other dementia friendly groups running in Leeds. Details of these can be found on the Alzheimer’s Society website and information about those local to the Practice can be found by following the link below.
