Reach out to a hotline in Switzerland for support with dementia and Alzheimer's

Dementia and Alzheimer's might sound scary and confusing. You might have a lot of questions and doubts about how you will cope with the diagnosis. Fortunately, there are 2 hotlines in Switzerland that provide support with dementia and Alzheimer's, where you can get free support. Dementia and Alzheimer's can look like:

  • Forgetfulness of simple things, like a shopping list, more than usual
  • Not caring about what others feel
  • Confusion about time, mixing past with present events
  • You might experience hallucinations and delusions
  • Feeling depressed and pessimistic for no obvious reason
  • Finding it difficult to speak and focus on what you’re saying
  • Using strange words to name otherwise very familiar objects
  • Wandering or getting lost in neighborhoods you know well

Everyone responds to receiving the diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s differently. It’s normal if you feel anger, grief, confusion, or even relief knowing what’s wrong with you. So many people around the world are going through the same thing at this very moment.

At the moment, you might feel confused. Nonetheless, having someone to talk to and find support in can help you find the right way to deal with this experience. Reach out to a helpline in Switzerland to share your thoughs and feelings and get support.
