What to do if you’ve just been diagnosed with dementia
Being diagnosed with dementia might make you feel sad, fearful, lost, alone, angry or even disbelieving. How you feel will probably vary from one day to the next.
If you can, talk to friends and family about how you’re feeling. When you feel ready, it can be helpful to start creating a plan for the future.
