This website is for anyone who wants to understand dementia better: what it is, what it means for daily life, and what we can do to better support those living with dementia, including family and friends. The Dementia Gateway is just that - it's a gateway to an enormous range of helpful resources: written information, films, activities, e-learning and so much more. It's been developed by a wide range of experts in dementia - including people living with dementia and family carers. We are updating the Dementia Gateway. New sections are being added on regular basis.
