Dementia Help Guide
Adapting to the changes that come with aging can be difficult, both for you and your loved ones. When these changes include memory loss or dementia, it can be particularly frightening and upsetting. It’s normal to worry about what a diagnosis of dementia means, what will happen, and how you’ll adjust.
Dealing with dementia is challenging, but you can ease your journey by taking care of yourself emotionally, creating a supportive environment, and continuing to make time for the people you love. Learning about the different types of dementia and educating yourself on what you can expect will help you plan for the road ahead and preserve a sense of control.
