"Most people say they would want to live at home for as long as possible if diagnosed with dementia. And that’s mostly what happens. Two thirds of people with dementia live in the community, often with additional support from family, friends and professional carers. Help with finances, shopping or personal care may make all the difference. But what are the other ways to help people with dementia to remain living at home for as long as possible? And how can the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) help?"

Families and professional carers need access to information and advice about dementia. SCIE’s dementia web resource offers content on a range of topics such as communication, nutrition, sensory loss and activities. As well as information, the site features a popular e-learning programme and over a dozen videos which bring to life the personal impact of dementia on people and their families.
