tide - together in dementia everyday

We are a UK wide involvement network of carers and former carers of people living with dementia, hosted by Life Story Network CIC.

Caring for someone with dementia can, at times, be challenging, isolating and exhausting but it can also be very rewarding. There are around 670,000 carers of people living with dementia in the UK. They do a fantastic job, saving the state £11bn a year, but many say that they do not have the services and support they need.

Here at tide, we empower carers and former carers of people living with dementia, helping them to recognise that they are experts by experience. We believe that by working closely with carers and former carers, we can help them understand that, as experts, their voice matters, and can be used to bring about real change. That’s why we’re here, uniting carers and former carers across the country to use their experience and knowledge to help themselves and others.

Benefits of being a member of tide:
