Early Stage

Go to Sessions

In the early stage, subtle changes in one’s abilities are noticeable to people living with dementia and/or to the people close to them. Everyone in the circle is re-arranging roles and responsibilities, consciously or not.

You may have recently learned about diagnosis or are going through the process of getting one. These sessions are meant to:

  • help you set the tone of how you will navigate dementia.
  • knowledge about what dementia is
  • what it is like for the person living with dementia
  • tips about important conversations to have now that will help in the future

Open the PDFs below. One will give you a visual of the overview of dementia. The second will give you a visual of early-stage.
