Struggling to cope with dementia and Alzheimer's? Hotline support is available in Northern Ireland

If you’re experiencing a loss of your ability to remember things or think clearly, you’re not alone. In fact, one person develops dementia every three seconds. There are 2 hotlines in Northern Ireland that provide support with dementia and Alzheimer's. Contact them if you are noticing the following symptoms:

  • Feeling anxious and fearful for no obvious reason
  • Forgetfulness of simple things, like a shopping list, more than usual
  • Getting confused over tasks that you used to perform routinely
  • Not caring about what others feel
  • Difficulties concentrating on reading or writing
  • Sudden changes in mood, agitation
  • You become paranoid and feel like everyone is working against you
  • Difficulties remembering what you knew and memorizing new things

Although everyone responds to the occurrence of dementia and Alzheimer’s differently, most people manage the condition very well. You might, however, also experience episodes of fear and pessimism. These are natural responses to the changes occurring.

You might feel the need to maintain your self-sufficiency as long as possible. Reaching out to volunteers from a helpline that supports with dementia and Alzheimer’s can help you cope with the diagnosis in a healthy and productive way.
