What We Do

The voice, friend and future of all carers of people with dementia

Connect -  Carers who are members of tide have said meeting people, hearing and sharing stories helps with feelings of loneliness and isolation. You can join us at our friendly get-togethers by visiting our events page.

Confidence - we have developed with carers a series of online events that are designed to help you on your caring journey through our Carer Development Programme. From understanding your own emotional wellbeing to workshops on practical caring solutions

Influence - we believe in creating real change together. Whether it's having the right information at a Doctor's appointment, making changes locally, or influencing at a national level to create policy change. We will support you to make your voice heard. See our campaigns page for the latest updates!

"It is important to belong to an organisation that has the interests of carers at heart. I feel the view of carers can be considered to be second-class and yet we are advocates for those loved ones and friends who cannot advocate for themselves. tide helps carers to spread the word about caring for those living with dementia. It helps us develop our own skills & knowledge and how it impacts on us."

Crowded Isolation and Loneliness

Current

‘I’m surrounded but I’m alone. I’ve never felt so isolated.’

We delve into the way carers really feel in their day-to-day lives. Being a carer means your life is so busy. You will be meeting with different healthcare professionals and may have care workers coming in and out of your house. A day in the life of a carer is so busy. You barely have time to think for yourself. You are surrounded but can feel so alone.
