Living well with Dementia

Helping people with dementia and their carers make informed choices about their lives

How Bromley can help you

This section of the Bromley MyLife website will be helpful for anyone

  • Who has been told they have dementia – however recent that was
  • For close friends and family of the affected person, as it contains information for anyone taking on a caring role.

As this section of the Bromley MyLife website evolves we will add further information - including descriptions, documents and links - so please check back regularly.

 

Symptoms

The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include

  • Memory loss
  • Difficulties with thinking
  • Problem-solving deterioration
  • Language difficulties
  • Possible changes in their mood or behaviour

These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia they often affect their daily life.
