What Carers living in Barking & Dagenham need to know about Dementia and where to get help.
Carers of Barking and Dagenham have produced this booklet as a ‘signpost’ for people living in the borough,
who are in some way affected by dementia and need to know where to go for help, support, services, information and advice.
Those who have been through the experience of caring for someone with dementia know the health and
social care system is a maze and often don’t manage to access services and support until there is a crisis.
We hope this booklet will encourage people to seek and access support.
Our gratitude goes to many carers and former carers who have made invaluable contributions to the development of this publication. Their experiences
have informed the content and the way it has been written.
