About this booklet

This booklet is about cancer and dementia. It is for anyone who looks after a friend or family member who has both cancer and dementia. We have written it in partnership with Dementia UK.

Managing two conditions can be very difficult for you and the person you care for. This booklet talks about some of the worries you may have and ways to cope. It also gives practical information about getting help and support.

We hope it helps you deal with some of the questions or feelings you may have. We cannot give advice about the best treatment for the person you care for. You should talk to their doctor, who knows their medical history.

You can visit our online information for carers of people with cancer and dementia. We have another booklet called A guide for people with cancer and dementia which has information for people who have both cancer and dementia.
