Sheffield Dementia Information Pack - January 2014

The Sheffield Dementia Information Pack is an introduction and guide to the medical, care, support and advice services in Sheffield and to living well for those worried about their worsening memory problems and those with a diagnosis of dementia. It will also be useful for family members and carers of these two groups.Sheffield Dementia Information Pack 3

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 (3rd Edition) for January 2014 is supported once again by the Department of Health.
