Grief, guilt, disbelief, denial, and even relief seven people living with dementia share how they felt the day they were diagnosed, and how they have come to terms with it since.
Being diagnosed with the neurological condition dementia terrifies many people who think their world is falling in. Many people have feelings which range from despair to denial, to guilt and relief.
A special project to try and raise awareness of the realities of dementia diagnosis has taken the stories of eight people from around the UK and asked them how they felt the day they were diagnosed.
They talk about how their feelings progressed and how they came to terms with their diagnosis and how they re-built their lives.
