What's Next After a Diagnosis?

Receiving a diagnosis for Alzheimer’s, dementia, or any other type of memory loss can be overwhelming and, frankly, a very emotional experience. But with the right help, you can move forward with the confidence that you are doing the best for everyone.


If you’re a caregiver or a family member of someone recently diagnosed, it’s important to seek support from others who have been through a similar experience. It’s not an easy process, but with a little preparation and help from others who have been there, you will be able to handle whatever may come.

Key Takeaways

  • Don’t go it alone—get the support you need
  • Know what questions to ask
  • Gain insights to plan for the future
  • Prioritize self-care
