There’s a lot of information about COVID-19 in the media, but not all of it is trustworthy and the situation is changing quickly. We’ve collated a range or resources from national organisations and those we work with across Greater Manchester. We’ll continue to update this page as and when new resources come in.
COVID-19 RESOURCES FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY DEMENTIA AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC
To make it easier for you to find the resources you need easily we’ve grouped them under topic headings:
- Stay safe and well
- Stay connected
- Keep a sense of purpose
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Keeping physically active
- Eating and drinking well
- Who to contact for help and advice
- Advice for volunteers
Information for people who are hearing or visually impaired can be found at the Adult Social Care COVID-19 Resources page.
Can you help us by completing a short survey?
This short survey will help us to assess how people living with dementia are feeling and responding at this challenging time. Your responses will help to inform us about what’s working well and help us to identify any areas of support that Greater Manchester services can improve on. https://surveys.socialsensecic.co.uk/s/GMcovid19/
