Keeping in touch following the COVID-19 outbreak
We are still facilitating our groups and welcome new members. We are trying out new ways of staying in touch such as video calls, and old ways too, such as the telephone! We also have our Facebook page and Twitter @NWDemNetwork which are regularly updated.
We encourage you to please get in touch with the DSDC team if you have anything you would like to discuss, we will do our best to help.

Living with dementia during lockdown
Teresa Davies, driving force of the 'Friendly Faces' initiative and integral member of our Caban group, has discussed how it affected her in these articles:
- Coronavirus and dementia: ‘I’m scared to go out after lockdown’
- Teresa’s story: “I’m worried I’ll lose my confidence or that my dementia symptoms will get worse”
You may also find this short video of our ‘top tips’ for living with dementia useful: Top tips for living with dementia video (scroll down the page to the video).
Our friends in DEEP (The UK Network of Dementia Voices) have produced some useful guides for people living with dementia who are unsure how to use video calls.
