"What Happens Next?" National Institute on Aging, September, 2007
"This booklet was developed by the early-stage support group at the Northwestern University Alzheimer's Disease Center in Chicago.
The authors chose to share their thoughts and feelings because they wanted to help others who also are facing the beginning stages of dementia. Here, you'll find firsthand views about a diagnosis, what to expect, how to talk with others about the disease, and more. You'll also find a list of helpful organizations that offer written materials about dementia, information about support groups and services, and ways to get involved in research that may help others in the future.
Our goal in publishing this booklet is to offer encouragement to those who have been diagnosed with early-stage dementia and to let you know that you are not alone. We also hope to help empower you to stay active in your care and decision making, just as the support group members quoted here have done. Finally, we encourage you to try to keep a positive outlook and to stay engaged in family and social activities, hobbies and pastimes, and creative interests that you can continue to enjoy. In doing so, you can take an active role in making the years ahead as rich and fulfilling as possible, despite the challenges. " "What Happens Next?" Note: You can order multiple print copies.
