A dementia carer is anybody who is actively involved with supporting someone living with any of the many types of dementia, This could be a husband, wife, brother, sister or other family member. The carer may not even be a family member but a friend or neighbour.

What issues do dementia carers face?

Dementia often gives rise to a mixture of physical and emotional issues. These can vary in time with the progress of the condition. Other pressures on the life of carer may also be involved because of their caring role
