If you’re feeling overwhelmed, this is a good place to begin
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, it can feel overwhelming and bring up emotions like anger, denial, fear, isolation and grief.
Acknowledging these feelings and seeking support can be some of the first steps you take for yourself or your family members.
Sometimes we hear about people experiencing some measure of relief and validation. For them, the diagnosis affirms that the changes they experienced were real; that they were correct in seeking help, and they are now positioned to seek out treatment and additional supportive measures.
You don’t have to take this journey alone.
There’s an entire community of support and valuable resources available for you. And you always have a choice. Allow us to be part of this journey. We can connect you with the right people and supports at the right time.
