Practical ideas for living with dementia during social distancing.

Coronavirus is disrupting life for everyone. If you’re living with dementia or caring for someone who is, this can bring its own challenges. If you need to find new ways to manage your health and wellbeing, we can help each other.

Here you can find and submit ideas for ways to stay connected and active without leaving your home. In our blog section too you’ll find regularly updated news, ideas and advice to help you during COVID19 and life distancing with dementia. 

About Dementia Change Action Network #DCAN

Dementia Change Action Network (DCAN) is a joint initiative by NHS England & Improvement, Alzheimer’s Society and the Coalition for Collaborative Care.

We are an open network of organisations, national membership bodies and individuals with professional or lived experience of dementia.

We are all bound by a common purpose to change how we all talk, think and respond to dementia through bringing NHS England’s comprehensive model of personalised care to life.

Since COVID19 we have decided our immediate focus must be to use our network to focus on ways to live well during social isolation and distancing.

 With “Distancing with Dementia” we hope to have created an open space where we all share and learn from each other’s ideas and experiences. In much the same way as we hope DCAN will continue to operate once COVID has passed. 

 United we will all see, hear, understand and acheive more.

 Together we can. #DementiaCan. #DCAN
