I am looking for a counsellor for a friend who has recently been diagnosed with EO and is feeling depressed. She lives in Wimbledon, but could drive to someone nearby. Any recommendations? Or local knowledge of resources in SW London?

I have no clue as I am in the USA but have you tried a department of aging or a mental health department at a local clinic or hospital?  They should be able to identify local agencies to check out.

Hi Notnuts,

Here is a link to the discussion board run by the Alzheimer's Society in the U.K.

https://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/

It's a very nice forum and the posters appear to be knowledgeable and very friendly. I hope this helps.

Welcome to our world notnuts. I'm so glad you found us. The link to the British Alz. Society may be your best bet.  It is important that the social worker be a person who has also received dementia training. i have known several folks with Early Onset who felt they have benefitted.

Look for Peter Berry on Facebook.  He lives in England and possibly close to London.  He also has EOAD and is very helpful toward people with the same disease.  If he doesn't know a doctor himself, he may be able to find more info to pass on.
