Care Home Advisor

CareHomeAdvisor is a website for the consumer (usually someone thinking of entering a care home or their relative) to understand quickly and clearly who the best care providers are so they can make an informed judgement. We only cover nursing and residential care homes for older people (over 65), including dementia homes. Entry into a home is often a result of an emergency with the decision made in a short time frame, so having access to the right facts all in one place and to the right people who can give informed advice is critical.

Dementia Friends Scotland

Dementia Friends is an informative website raising the awareness of people with Dementia. You can become a Dementia Friend and after watching their videos, enter your details and they will send you a certificate and badge. It’s main purpose is to raise awareness when dealing with people with Dementia either in the workplace or when out and about.

Dementia Guidance

Dementia Guidance provides a guide to free services available throughout the UK to people with dementia and their families.
