“Caring for a person living with memory loss or dementia is a journey, one that can last for many years, and is filled with twists and turns. The journey is not a straight path through stages—each person with Alzheimer’s or other type of dementia may progress differently and in their own time. Family members who are companions on this journey will need information, support and guidance along the way.
Most families report they are not prepared for life with dementia and that they would welcome some type of “Road Map.” This document is designed to be just that. It provides a look at the big picture and the road ahead—and offers direction and tips about what to expect, what decisions lie ahead, and what steps to take.”
