During September in 2012, DAI hosted four Masterclasses, and to change the pace a little this year for our daily #DAM2020 blog series, on Day 28 of Dementia Awareness Month 2020, we are posting the second one, which is about the conversation with your doctor, when you are worried about cognitive changes.
Included on the panel are two medical doctors, Dr Jennifer Bute and Dr David Kramer, who were both working as medical doctors when diangosed with dementia. Much of the advice is still extremely relevant to getting a diagnosis today, but it is also very useful advice once diagnosed, for all follow up appointments.
Since you’re here…
… we’re asking readers like you to support our members, by donating to our organization.
With more than 50 million people living with dementia, and the Coronavirus pandemic causing everyone to operate in a virtual world, our work has never been more important.
Every contribution, however big or small, is so valuable to our work of supporting people diagnosed with any type of dementia to live more positively, and with a greater sense of hope. Thank you.
