Question and answer
Q: describe the possible impact of receiving a diagnosis of dementia on the individual and their family/ friends
A: A diagnosis of dementia is likely to affect not only the person with dementia but also their family, close friends, workmates and employer. Often it is the family and friends who first notice that something is wrong. [ The person with dementia is not always aware that there is any problem. For many people, it is a long awaited explanation after weeks, months or years of consultation and tests,
whereas for others it may come as a complete shock. Some people feel the need to be alone in order to gather their feelings. Others seek the support of family or close friends. Yet others prefer to submerge themselves in an activity or surround themselves with lots of people in an attempt to shut themselves off from the knowledge of the diagnosis. It is important to give yourself the time to settle down and adjust after getting the diagnosis. Regardless of whether you feel the need to be alone or in the company of other people, having a supportive social context can be particularly helpful. Unfortunately, not everyone has this. ]
