DA's are knowledgeable about all aspects of living with dementia and can direct people to a range of local services. They will work with the person and their carer's/supporters to identify their individual needs, provide them with the right information at the right time and signpost or refer them to appropriate services to ensure they have the help, care and support they need. There are nine DA's covering the county - please contact the Alzheimer's Society for details.
