What is post-diagnostic support at Cadabams?
The chronic and progressive nature of dementia, coupled with the usual onset of physical disability in many cases can be incredibly difficult for families and the individual to deal with. They will need support to overcome the implications of the disorder and they will need help to learn to move on in life. At Cadabams we understand the difficulties caused by a diagnosis of dementia, and we believe that families should receive the best resources to cope with it.
