It will also be useful for family members and carers of these two groups.SDIP 2015 cover

It has five sections. After the Introduction, Section 2 describes what dementia is and its symptoms. Section 3 summarises the most frequently offered suggestions about how to live well with dementia. Section 4 is an overview of the assessment and treatment services in Sheffield, and focuses on the role of the National Health Service (NHS) memory services and the pathways into them. Section 5 is a directory of advice and support services in Sheffield that have expertise in dementia.

Financial support for the booklet’s production was provided initially by the Marjorie Coote Old People’s Charity Fund, Sheffield Town Trust, Sheffield Church Burgesses Trust and The University of Sheffield. The current version (4th Edition) for April 2015 is supported by the Sheffield Town Trust and the Marjorie Coote Old People’s Charity Fund. Many thanks to both organisations.
