Top Tip - Episode 7 - Say 'living with dementia'

Today’s top tip is about taking the fight to dementia and the language we use.

Two weeks ago we shared some top tips on how to have a conversation with your parents about care.

You can read or watch the video of that here.

There's also a full guide on our website, CareChooser.com - click here

This week’s top tip - Say a person is ‘living with dementia’ and not ‘suffering with dementia.’

‘My mother is living with dementia.’

‘My uncle is living with dementia.’

We are very good at taking the fight to cancer. We use empowering language such as ‘fighting against it’ and the like but not so much with dementia.


Share this with someone who needs to see it and watch out for the next episode. Have a great week.
