Seven pieces of information that you should expect to receive after being diagnosed with dementia

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has put together a guide to help with planning support after being diagnosed with dementia including seven pieces of information you should expect to receive: 

  1. Your type of dementia and how it will affect you.
  2. Any further tests, treatment, activities or therapies that might help you.
  3. Who will provide your care and how to contact them, including the professional who will coordinate your care.
  4. Support groups and charities that can help you.
  5. How dementia can affect your driving and what you need to do.
  6. How your employer should support you if you work (or are looking for work).
  7. Any research studies you could take part in.
