See below. When choosing a residential care facility, you have to make an informed decision. Visit facilities that specialize in memory care or have separate units that specialize in dementia care. You have to visit the facility and see for yourself if the facility suits your needs and the needs of the family member. You also can do online search to start. Good luck!
Could anyone recommend any 'good' support groups/websites for relatives of sufferers of vascular dementia?
See below. You can use this website as a starting point. They have a resoure locator and info on vascular dementia http://www. Alzinfo. Org/resource-locator good luck!
NIH and NIA. Have good websites. The Alzheimer's Association and the Alzheimer's Foundation of America also have websites and support groups depending on where you live. There are also online support groups. These groups often help families with all types of dementia.
