The current coronavirus outbreak has been particularly difficult for people living with dementia, their family and friends.
Many have been staying at home to minimise the risk of contracting COVID-19.
To protect people with dementia from COVID-19, some services had to be changed, and they may also have been missing important social connections and activities crucial for wellbeing.
