Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be an overwhelming experience. Alzheimer’s WA’s Adjusting to Change program is designed for people who have recently been diagnosed with dementia, as well as their primary carer.
The program offers information and support for those living with early stage dementia and includes a series of structured information sessions held weekly, over a five week period.
The program provides information and support, assisting you at a time of receiving a diagnosis and what this means for you and your family including:
- Understanding dementia
- Strategies for adapting to changes
- Future planning
- Relationship dynamics
- Linking with community supports
To be eligible to join a group, the person attending (or their loved one) must have a diagnosis of dementia or be in the process of obtaining a diagnosis. The person must be aware of the changes they are experiencing, and it must be their wish to join.
