A diagnosis of dementia can come as a great shock, even if you have been expecting it.  You may be feeling a wide range of emotions. 

Read our booklet I have dementia...first steps after diagnosis to hear directly from other people with dementia who share how they cope with this diagnosis and how they live well day-to-day. To order a copy call our free and confidential Helpline 1800 341 341.
