We are a UK wide involvement network of carers of people with dementia, using our voices for change.
Caring for someone with dementia can, at times, be challenging, isolating and exhausting but it can also be very rewarding. There are about 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 of people with dementia, helping them recognise that they are experts by experience. We believe that by working closely with 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 across the country to use their experience and knowledge to help other carers.
tide, ‘together in dementia everyday’, is a UK wide involvement network of carers, former carers and health and care professionals who are working together to build a better future for carers of people living with dementia. Hosted by Life Story Network CIC, our team is made up of a group of former carers of people with dementia who are passionate about improving the lives of carers and those they care for across the UK.
We’re determined to change the way carers are recognised, valued and treated. We believe that services and support for carers of people with dementia are a fundamental and necessary human right. It is our mission to ensure that the needs of these carers are recognised and valued by absolutely everyone in the UK: politicians, the health and social care system, the educational system, employers, the media and the general population.
