Getting Started: Tips for the Newly Diagnosed

Hearing news about a diagnosis, can be a devastating, confusing, and difficult experience. To help our listeners find the way to helpful information, and look for guidance on getting started, we’ve curated content that our audience has found to be the most useful—in understanding the basics about dementia care, learning about lifestyle practices we can adopt to slow the disease, putting together a daily routine that works and helps both the caregiver and the person who has been diagnosed, and thinking about what a care team might look like. Dr. Steven E. Arnold will review recommendations for lifestyle practices, while Lena discusses practical issues for day-to-day living and, importantly, how she learned in the end that despite the challenges, it was a worthwhile journey.
