A gift in memory of a loved one

Many people are affected either directly or indirectly by dementia. Making a donation to support the work of charities like Dementia Care can be a fantastic way of remembering a loved one and celebrating their life.

How to make a donation in memory of a loved one

Many people choose to remember their loved one by asking family and friends to make a donation at the funeral or memorial service. The funeral director will usually handle this, collecting cheques and cash and forwarding them on to us.

The funeral director may also set up a page for on-line donations on the Memory Giving website. The advantage of this is that, as a charity, we can claim Gift Aid on all donations made. There are a number of dementia charities listed on Memory Giving, so please make sure that the funeral director selects Dementia Care (look out for our logo).

You can also make a single or regular donation in memory of a loved one on-line here through Everyday Hero or by cheque.

Please ensure that cheques are made payable to ‘Dementia Care’ and sent to:

Dementia Care
The Bradbury Centre
Darrell Street
Newcastle upon Tyne
NE13 7DS


Tree of Memories

A great way to remember a loved one is to have a leaf on our Tree of Memories engraved with their name and a personal message and make a donation to help us with our work for other people with dementia.

For more information, please visit our Tree of Memories page.
