Together in Dementia Everyday (TIDE)
Finally, we wanted to give you details about TIDE after we shared information about who they are and what they do in our Carer Forum recently.
TIDE is an organisation committed to giving those that care for someone with dementia a voice that can be heard. They work to empower carers to use their lived experiences to influence communities, society, health and social care organisations, research and policy development.
It is free to join, and you can be as involved as much or as little as you wish.
