Allied health professionals and you

Carers, families and friends

Most people have someone to turn to, whether you live alone or live with others.

They might be part of your family, they might be friends, they might be part of your community. In health care, these people are often called ‘carers’. The people who care for you are doing so willingly. But they might find they would like some support too. Carers, family and friends of people with dementia often say they need information, emotional support, an opportunity to meet with other carers, and guidance to find their way through the system. And sometimes, they need some time out.

Allied health professionals can help with all of this.
