‘Caring for a relative with a failing memory leading to dementia can be very difficult but you need not struggle on alone. You can get help and advice locally from the Alzheimer’s Society which provides wide-ranging support for carers and their families across Brighton and Hove.
Known as the Brighton Area Branch, it offers information, a drop-in centre, a relief care scheme, a telephone helpline, carers’ support groups, outings and socials, as well as a quarterly newsletter. It also runs a day centre called the Towner Day Club for under 65s with dementia.
To get in touch, call 01273 726266 from 9am to 11pm seven days a week. You can also email or see the website on www.alzheimers.org.uk/Brighton. The branch office is at 206 Church Road, Hove BN3 2DJ, where there is a drop in centre from 9.30am to 1pm Tuesday to Friday only.’
