Our Dementia Advice Centre is a service for people living in Newcastle upon Tyne looking for effective, coordinated support and/or information about living with dementia

Designed to fill a gap in community-led services as a point of access for people who have been  diagnosed with different types of  dementia, as well as the family members, carers, partners or friend of those effected by dementia. 

Where Are We?

Funded by The Ballinger Charitable Trust, and based at The Bradbury Centre within  Dementia Matters, the Dementia Advice Centre is open for people and professionals  to access in a timely and responsive manner a range of dementia specific services, from information and advice on financial benefits and entitlements, home support, day care and respite/residential services, to specialist clinical support  from the dedicated on-site Lead Admiral Nurse, Joe Costello.
