Welcome, we are glad you are here

 
A little about who we are

 

Forward with DementiaTM was created by and for people living with dementia, carers and health care professionals. 

We set out to provide guidance, information and highlight available support after a diagnosis of dementia. 

The UK Team are:

Our research in the UK is funded by the Alzheimer’s Society

Development and design is in collaboration with Spencer du Bois, UK

Most importantly we would like to acknowledge our unnamed collaborators, the people living with dementia, carers, health care professionals, families and friends who helped develop and design Forward with dementia. And by no means least Angela Mattison for keeping all the plates spinning.
