The Journey—Understanding the Progression of Dementia and What to Expect

What is dementia and how does it progress? Caregivers and families can provide the best support by understanding the ‘journey’ as dementia goes from mild through to the late stages. Being prepared and understanding what is happening gives caregivers tools to manage the disease better, help their loved one better, and help themselves. Knowledge is a key component.
