Post Diagnostic Support in Tameside and Glossop
There is a lot of help and support available for people who have received a diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or dementia. The Memory Clinic run by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust has developed a series of leaflets to help you to find the information and support you may need following diagnosis.
The leaflets cover Tameside, Glossop and details of the Memory Information Group run by the Memory Clinic. These leaflets can be read and downloaded by clicking the links below:

Dementia: care, support and awareness - NEW Government Survey
The Government’s aim is for England to be the best place in the world for people with dementia, their families and carers to live and the best place to undertake research into dementia.
The Government wants to hear first-hand from people with dementia, their families and carers if we are making a difference to your day to day lives.
The survey is for:
- any person in England who has received a diagnosis of dementia in the last two years (between November 2014 and November 2016)
- any person in England who currently provides unpaid care or support to a family member, friend or neighbour who has been diagnosed with dementia in the last two years (between November 2014 and November 2016)
If this survey isn't for you, we will be talking to other groups of people about dementia in the future. If you would like to hear more about this work, sign up for dementia updates from the Department of Health.
