Younger people with dementia: Scotland 2014

Thanks to Younger Onset Dementia and Me, I have been introduced to this 2014 publication from Scotland. I have copied this text from their blog.

younger people with dementia Younger people with dementia :living well with your diagnosis This publication has been written in discussion with people who have a diagnosis and their families. It includes information that they felt was helpful or would have been helpful to them at and around the time of their diagnosis. It is specifically written for younger people with dementia and their families. This publication addresses some of the questions you may have about a diagnosis of dementia at a younger age. Each section looks at a different aspect of your life and suggests ways to adapt to any changes you may face.

  1. It has taken me considerable time to digest this publication. Usually I would print it out, but 103 pages? Too much. So I have read it in bits during the day. It is very comprehensive and covers a lot of ground. Of course the legalities of Powers of Attorney, End of Life Documentation are different, but on the whole I thought it was a very good publication. Is it too long? Perhaps, but I can’t think of what you would delete to make it shorter, I liked the comments from people with a diagnosis and carers. Well done Scotland. I would be interested to know how you feel about this Kate. Keep well….keep paddling…..you are loved and admired.

    • Thanks Wendy… and dutifully edited (hopefully), and to your satisfaction too of course as I have deleted your next comment about the typo errors! 😉 We both like the booklet, and I will definitely highlight it to our national office, as we are currently working on reviewing the one Alzheimer’s Australia has up on their site.
