Dementia affects the whole life of the person who has it, as well as their family. If you have been diagnosed with dementia, or you are caring for someone with the condition, remember that there is advice and support available to help you live well.
Even if you have suspected for a while that you or someone you love might have dementia, the diagnosis may come as a shock to the person with the condition and those around them.
People with dementia can feel vulnerable as their condition progresses and they may increasingly rely on other people to do things with or for them. It is important that people who have dementia feel reassured and supported, while retaining some level of independence. Although some symptoms are common to many people with dementia, each person's experience of the condition will be different.
Over time, people with dementia may require help to cope at home. It is natural to feel worried about the future, but you are not alone – whether you have dementia or you care for someone with the condition.
