7 Stages of Dementia – An infographic

Collaborative Post

Dementia effects more than 5.2million adults over the age of 65. There are different types of Dementia, which effect people in different ways. Having a loved one diagnosed with Dementia, I found that it was quite an upsetting diagnosis. I had so many questions. No one could help answer some of my questions, as they couldn’t give me the time line I wanted. It’s very difficult, when you’re not sure what is going to happen next. This infographic shares information on the 7 stages of Dementia.

I think it’s really important to ask questions about what support is available at the earliest opportunity. Even, if it’s not needed quite yet. Researching what assistance is available, means it will hopefully be easier to access when it is needed at a later date. I have always felt that enabling my loved one to help choose the type of care they want when they need more support is really important too. Remember, you’re not alone, and there are lots of support networks out there to help.
