The Tavistock Dementia Alliance is striving to Dementia Friendly 2018-19 logocreate a dementia-friendly community in the town by involving everyone in heightening awareness and understanding of dementia and its symptoms. 

Our aim is to improve the quality of life for many local people with dementia, as well as their carers.

We have created this website to explain our aims as an Alliance and also to act as a useful signpost to further information and support.


People with a dementia and their carers need a community that supports them to:

  • Find their way around and feel safe - but not embarrassed

  • Carry on doing the same things they have always done – like going to the shops, getting on a bus, playing sport, or just sitting in the park

  • Keep in touch and feel that they still belong to the community
