‘Continuing to be me’ – Recovering a life with a Diagnosis of Dementia

  • ‘Continuing to be me’ – Recovering a life with a Diagnosis of Dementia

    The purpose of this briefing paper is to explore what ‘recovery’ might mean for those with a diagnosis of dementia.

    The authors explore what enables people to regain hope and live positively, maintain personal control and have the opportunity to do the things they value, remain a valued part of their community and participate not as victims, but as citizens.

    ‘Continuing to be me’ – Recovering a life with a Diagnosis of Dementia was launched at ImROC training events facilitated by Dr Rachel Perkins on Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust Older People’s wards on 30 September 2016.
