In the South West area there are over 81,000 people with dementia and it is predicted that this figure will rise to over 106,000 by 2021. The South West has the highest number of people living with dementia in the West, however, it also has the lowest diagnosis rate.

There are support groups and local services which provide day care and home care for people with dementia, as well as support and befriending services to help partners and families cope with the demands of caring.

Locally they provide Memory Cafes, Singing for the Brain, Dementia Adviser Service, Side by Side, Carers Information & Support Programmes and much more across Somerset.
