I need support for Alzheimer’s or a dementia condition (including those linked to Parkinson’s)

If you require assistance with or guidance on registering with Spanish public health care please click here.

There is a network of dementia support charitable organisations that can provide support. In some cases, support includes access to day centres, often with English spoken. In other cases, groups provide assistance and companionship for patients and their carers. If you are also worried about seeing a doctor about a condition, they can also provide support ahead of a visit.

CLICK HERE on this link for a list of organisations that can provide guidance on Alzheimer’s and dementia related conditions and local help*. Do not forget to enter in the name of the town or municipality where you live to filter the results for those covering your area. CLICK HERE

You should also make sure you are aware of or receiving any benefits you could be entitled to in Spain for people with long-term health conditions. See this link to our Helpful Topic on benefits. 

Extra information that might also help:

National Alzheimer’s assocation in Spain

You may find that the search results on the above link just give you the details of Ceafa – the national associaton for Alzhemier’s in Spain (www.ceafa.es). This does not mean that there is no local association specifically for Altzheimer’s or dementia conditions in your area: use the national association website link (in Spanish only) to search for local Alzheimer’s organisations that are part of that association. Here is the link to the clickable map of Spain on that website:  https://www.ceafa.es/es/quienes-somos/asociaciones-alzheimer/consigue-ayuda

Generally,  local associations on that link to Ceafa which are outside the areas with the very highest concentration of foreign residents or visitors can normally help only in Spanish, or local regional language, but their advice may be very useful in understanding local resources or procedures if you are able to make the first contact with the help of a Spanish speaker.  Click here for possible local community organisations that might be able to help you by translating over the phone. Do not forget to enter in the name of the town or municipality where you live to filter the results for those covering your area.

*Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s is not necessarily always a condition with dementia symptoms, however for convenience we also list Parkinson’s organisations once you click on the local results search link. You will also find the national Parkinson’s association link listed in these results which has a network of local associations.  See a map you can search here:   https://www.esparkinson.es/asociaciones/  As with the advice for Ceafa for Altzheimer’s (see previous paragraphs), staff or volunteers may possibly not speak English but may be able to give a very useful insight if you can secure the translation help of a Spanish speaker.
