Changes in your abilities

(From the Shared Experiences: Suggestions for those with Alzheimer’s disease booklet and audiotape by the Alzheimer Society of Canada. To get a copy, contact your local Alzheimer Society.)

One way to cope with the changes is to focus on what you are still able to do, and to continue to participate in activities that are meaningful to you. There may come a time when you will have to accept help from family members and friends. If you let them know what is needed, they can assist in maintaining your independence.
