Making the Most of Life Following a Dementia Diagnosis
The recent Town Hall Forum, Making the Most of Life Following a Dementia Diagnosis, provided an overview of what to expect once there is a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or related dementia. It also offered suggestions for adjusting to the "new normal." And, an overview of how to prepare to become the legal decision maker. Here are a few of the materials that were shared.

It was a very difficult decision to place my wife in an Alzheimer's care community. After visiting ActivCare and talking with the community staff, I decided this was the best place for her. Now after four months, I know I made the right decision. She is well taken care of by a dedicated, loving and compassionate staff of trained caregivers.” —Spouse of ActivCare Resident
