Try to keep in touch with your family and friends and with any clubs or hobbies you have. Try new hobbies, join new groups. Aim to get out at least twice a per week. 

Talk to people every day – family, friends, neighbours. Stay in touch by phone, email or by arranging to meet people. Talk to your health professionals or call the Alzheimer National Helpline.

Keep in touch with your community – join clubs or parish groups. Volunteer your time or get involved in community groups. Think about the Alzheimer Society Social Clubs or Alzheimer Cafes (link both to services area)

Arrange outings – for an afternoon, a day or overnight- what ever suits you. Include your family and friends, arrange a meal or a trip to the cinema or even a walk in the park or a chat over coffee and cake!

Use the internet – there are lots of websites to share your views and ideas – websites about areas that interest you (gardening, books, art) or websites about dementia. (link to online forums)

We really look forward to our social club every week, we have met such lovely new people...we have such fun...” person with dementia and his wife
