If your relative wants to stay in his or her own home, but needs help and support to do so, there is a range of services that can provide care or other help at home. In this guide, we take you through the process of identifying your relative’s needs and who might meet them.

Use our Care services directory to find domiciliary care and care homes 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.
