NHS funding is free and open to everyone who meets certain criteria and without any kind of financial assessment, so it's a good idea to explore these options, even though the criteria for eligibility are strict.

Use our Care services directory to find care homes and domiciliary care anywhere in the UK. You can also find support groups for people affected by dementia.

If you're wondering what kind of help would be best for your relative or friend, our Care advice tool can give you some guidance about housing options, day-to-day living arrangements and how to pay for care.
