24 hour Freephone Dementia Helpline

by Alzheimer Scotland

Our 24 hour Freephone Dementia Helpline provides information, signposting and emotional support to people with the illness, their families, friends and professionals.

The Helpline is staffed by trained volunteers supported by staff at Alzheimer Scotland. Many of the volunteers have had personal or professional experience of caring for people with dementia. Volunteers on the Helpline can provide information right away if you have any questions or concerns, as well as send out free information to carers, family members or people with dementia.

The Helpline can offer information with any of the following topics, and more:
- Understanding the illness
- How to get help locally
- Maintaining independence
- Financial and legal matters
- Rights and entitlements
- Coping with behaviour
- Community care
- Long-stay care
- Anything else to do with dementia
