Alzheimer’s & Dementia
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can be frightening for you and your loved ones.
It’s normal to worry about what a diagnosis of dementia means, what will happen, and how you’ll adjust. Educating yourself about Alzheimer’s and dementia can help you make important decisions early and feel more in control during this difficult time. Starting treatment right away is also important, as early intervention can prolong independence and help you continue to live life fully.
You’ll also want to work hand in hand with your family members and make sure that caregivers have the support and assistance they need.
