Go to Sessions

Dementia may be something you have lived with for a while or a shorter time. As dementia progresses, the abilities of the person living with dementia change, too. They are working hard to keep up with daily life and need an increasing amount of support to make sense of the world around them. As dementia progresses, roles and responsibilities change for everyone involved. All the changes bring new emotions and grief.

The person living with dementia and their care partners need help and support with the changes. It takes a village to support someone living with dementia. The middle stage session will give you the following:

  • education about the changes you may encounter,
  • tips on how to address the changes
  • continue to support the person to have the best quality of life
  • opportunities to reflect on your emotions
  • offer suggestions of where to find support.

Open the following PDFs. The first one provides an overview of dementia, while the second one focuses on the middle stage.
