Who can get care and support


You will find information to help you understand what services are available to support you.

Services and adaptations

In the early stages of dementia, many people are able to look after their homes in the same way as before their diagnosis. However, as the illness gets worse it is likely you will find it difficult to look after yourself and your home and you may need help with daily activities.

Your home can be adapted to enable you to stay safe, mobile and independent, and you can find practical advice in this section. The NHS Choices website also has some useful information about aids and equipment, including available funding. .

Assistive technology (Telecare)

Devices to help with everyday living can help you remain independent at home as they ensure a minor event does not turn into a crisis. When something significant happens an alarm is raised and an appropriate response is provided promptly. Information about how you can access this system can be found on this section.

Coming home from hospital

This can be difficult if you live alone. In York, the British Red Cross's Support at Home scheme and Age UK's Hospital services scheme may be able to provide support to you when you leave hospital.

These services are there to support you for a set amount of time only and are not ongoing.
