How Does Dementia Affect You?
Dementia is a complex and progressive condition that affects individuals in various ways, depending on factors such as the type of dementia, its stage, the individual's overall health, and their support network. Not only does it affect the health of an individual, but the condition has a strong impact felt throughout society. We refer to 'people living with dementia' as an umbrella term for individuals with the condition, but also family members, care givers, healthcare professionals, communities, social support organisations, workplace & employment and more.

Stimulation for my husband who has Dementia. He loves music and he can sing and read words to a song, but he has no conversation or ability to express himself. After a singing session, he feels happier. My husband enjoys the company of familiar faces and being with other men. His Dementia has stabilised a little. His concentration is slightly better. Kim has brought a bit of fun into his life.

Myself as a Carer I have found new friends both in those suffering from Dementia and their Carers. When my husband first attended, he was reluctant to join in, but thoroughly enjoy it now. Although my husband forgets each week where he is going, once there, he enjoys the hours session. I think this would be a worthwhile project for all older people, as it does lift their spirits.
