Getting a diagnosis of dementia is devastating, scary, and totally overwhelming. What does it mean for your parent, yourself, and the rest of your family?
And what about your plans for the future? Plans will likely change, and you will need to find a way to balance the needs of your parent with the responsibilities you already have.
