Voices of Those Diagnosed with Dementia

Today we discussed the process of getting diagnosed which can cause more stress without added support.  Listen to those who have been through the process and hear about  Doctors and clinic roles; along with great ideas to improve our healthcare system and offer support needed for those living with dementia.

Dementia Chats™ was created with the intention to educate people living with dementia; their care partners both family and friends as well as professionals and advocates.  Our Experts are those diagnosed with dementia.   Our goal is to empower all to continue to live well and remain connected to their community.
