If you are worried that your memory, or the memory of someone you know, is beginning to affect everyday life, it is worth sharing your worries and seeking advice. Although there are many reasons for memory loss, it can sometimes be an early sign of dementia.

You should first speak with your GP about any concerns or arrange for further investigation. You may be referred to the hospital Memory Service where a formal diagnosis can be made.

Alongside the NHS and adult social care services, available via your GP and the Isle of Wight Council, there are several voluntary sector organisations on the Island who support people with dementia, their families and carers

Dementia is fast becoming the UK’s largest health and social care challenge. It is likely that at some point dementia will touch the lives of each and every one of us in some way.

This strategy sets out our vision for improving dementia services and making the Isle of Wight a place where people with dementia can live safe and fulfilling lives.
