Dementia information pack
Being told that you or a loved one has dementia can be a traumatic and worrying time.
But help and advice is available from a variety of sources.
To help patients and their carers cope with the life-changing impact of dementia, North Norfolk CCG has kindly shared their virtual information pack. The aim is to signpost people to the wide range of free help and support available following diagnosis and to provide answers to the most commonly asked questions.
The free information available to dementia patients and their carers includes:
An NHS guide for people newly diagnosed with dementia in Great Yarmouth and Waveney download here
