Support groups

Salford Dementia Roadmap includes many of the groups and activities taking place in Salford.

Carers (family and friends) can get in contact with Salford Carers Centre.

Practical help

You will get lots of advice and suggestions from other people in the support groups. 

The Alzheimer's Society fact sheets cover all aspects of dementia including many practical things that you may need to think about - driving, financial planning, keeping active for example.

As the condition progresses, you may become eligible for care and support - help with everyday tasks. If a loved one is caring for you, they may also be able to get some support. You can ask Adult Social Care for an assessment.

Planning for the future

It is important to make plans while you are still able. You can decide what you would like to happen in the future, who you want to look after your affairs and who you want to look after your finances, when you are no longer able to.

Manchester University's Legal Advice Centre runs a dementia law clinic which can help you with planning.

Making Salford more dementia-friendly

Businesses, organisations and individuals can become a dementia friend and help to make Salford more dementia friendly.
