Have you recently been diagnosed with dementia?
The dementia guide is for anyone who has recently been told they have dementia. It will help you understand more about dementia and the treatments, support and services that are available. It includes information about how you can live as well as possible with dementia and about making plans for the future. It also contains helpful information for anyone taking on a caring role.
The dementia guide has recently been updated, and now includes sections on living alone, technology, coming to terms with a diagnosis, communicating and changes to relationships.
